    New system only boots with acpi=off, noapic, and nolapic


    I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 on a new system I built. I am trying to do this from USB. I have installed Ubuntu many times in the past this way. However, on this system I can only get Ubuntu to boot with the follow three options: acpi=off, noapic, and nolapic. It only works with all three.

    Here are the stats on my system:
    OCZ 120 GB Vertex 3 SATA III 6.0 Gb-s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive
    EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified 3072 MB PCI Express 2.0
    Samsung Blu-Ray Combo Internal 12XReadable and DVD-Writable Drive with Lightscribe SH-B123L/BSBP
    Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4 GHz 8 MB Cache Socket LGA1155 Processor
    Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel

    Windows7 works fine. I have tried Kubuntu and Mint as well but they all need the same options. I attached a picture of the point at which it stops. I only have a SSD drive, not HDD. Don't know if that matters. I tried disconnecting the drive to see I could boot and it made not difference.

    Any helping at getting this system to boot would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to develop in Windows since I have been using Scientific Linux at work for years.
