View Full Version : [ubuntu] Null local APIC address error - MP table errors detected - Disabled SMP support

August 13th, 2009, 06:05 PM
The following message is received after attempting an install. Ubuntu has been installed on my machine before but is failing. Windows will install so I doubt it is a hardware issue. The system reboots after selecting "Install Ubuntu" when the status bar first appears. This is a Dell 8100 with sufficient memory to run Ubuntu.

[4294667.296000] BIOS bug, MP table errors detected...

Any ides, help, or support would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
