View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.04 on Acer Aspire 5515

While installing Ubuntu 9.04 on my Acer Aspire 5515, the bootloader said MP-Bios bug: 8254 Timer not connected to IO-APIC. After digging around the forums I pressed F6 before telling to install and added noapic to the load options.

That fixed the problem, but now it gets stuck at "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel."

Is this normal? The CD stops spinning after it begins booting.
