    Question ACPI BIOS Error (bug): ***excess arguments ASL

    Hi there.
    This weekend, I made an attempt to upgrade old computer at my parents from... ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 I think. Originally dual boot with Wvista (yeah, old notebook and not really used for a while). When things went sideways (powr outage during upgrade is rarelly a good thing)... long story short, I decided to completly wipe out everything on the disk and make clean istall of Ubuntu/lubuntu only. However, since it is a 32-bit architecture ntb, I ended up trying to install Ubuntu 16.04 from DVD (18.04 does not have a 32-bit ISO to install). The DVD won't boot, and I got an error
    Code:
    [0661911] ACPI BIOS Error (bug):\_SB.PCI0._OSC: Excess arguments - ASL declared 5, ACPI requires 4 (20181213/nsarguments-164) 
    even before I got to choose language and whether I want to "install" o "try" ubuntu. Ok, no big deal, I tried with Lubuntu 18.04 DVD. Same result. Got into some googling - this error seems to be widely discussed, however I was not able to find any solution for my case, everything I found was how to deal with it when system is already installed. I got workong backwards, I did try to install Ubuntu 14.10 (had that DVD on me for a long time) and upgrade from there to try solve this. Was not able to upgrade from there, even after editing sources.list to point to old-releases. After a long while trying, I went even more backwards - downloaded 14.04LTS, succesfully installed, initiated do-release-upgrade to 16.04. When it ("succesfully") ended and the computer was rebooting, it never booted. I only got "flashing" screen (from completely black to black with backlight on, I suppose). After pressing power button in this stage, I got the "ubuntu shutting down" screen (the one with logo and dots underneath it).I did try to change some settings in bios utility (fast boot enabled/disabled) and try with each described step in both states. I am really out of ideas.

    Some info about the computer:
    Acer Aspire 5720
    Intel DualCore @ 1.5GHz (not my idea that one, originally it was higher. Bios obviously does not allow overclocking directly from the bios setup, so since I do not have working OS I have to work with this for now
    BIOS setup: insydeh20 setup utility V1.45 rev3
    currently with completely new and non functional ubuntu. No data to save . Plan is to use the computer only to check my emails and maybe social networks when I am at my parent's)

    I won't probably have acces to this ntb for two weeks or so now, but man, it is bugging me. Any ideas what I can do next time to get it working with at least some linux distro (preferably lubuntu/ubuntu)? I got the feeling from my research that iti is problem of bios/linux kernel

    Re: ACPI BIOS Error (bug): ***excess arguments ASL

    Hi, welcome to the fora.

    The 5720 is 64 bit.
    I would not recommend Ubuntu for this hardware but X/Lubuntu 19.10. No upgrades, only clean installs.

    Thank you for your response
    I am pretty sure the original Wvista (sold with the computer) was 32-bit. I have to admit I have not double checked whether the hardware is actually 32 or 64 and just ran with the information from Wvista (did not even occured to me that I could have 64bit computer with 32bit system isntalled directly from seller).
    I surely will prefer 18.04 (or 20.04) since they are LTS, but I will sure try to install the 64bit version next time I'll got my hands on that notebook.

    Re: ACPI BIOS Error (bug): ***excess arguments ASL

    I understand that you want to install 20.04 for its LTS status when it's ready but there is no point in selecting something that has already spent two of the three years of support.

    Anyway, post back when you get access to the computer and let's hear how it all goes.

    Re: ACPI BIOS Error (bug): ***excess arguments ASL

    OK, so the attempt to install 64bit versions ended... well, identically to the 32bit ones. So, since I was unable to find my original documentation of the laptop, I returned to the 32bit versions. I sacrificed 20Gb of space to make my laptop dual-boot (i added another 14.04 to the "not-functional" 16.04). Then, I was able to selecet "advanced options -> recovery mode" for my 16.04. It loaded the login screen (that I considered a succes). However, when I tried to log in, I only got a blank background. Even Ctrl-T for opening terminal did nothing. So i switched to tty2 (or some of the other terminals without graphics) and logged in there. I got a warning about some missing dependency (apt-something missing in some python script, I think). I tried to install that one, I got an error. so I ran apt-get -f. Everything started to work in non-graphic terminal, tty7 still had the same issue. I tried apt-get install gnome. When I tried to login to gnome in tty7, I always got returned back to the loggin screen. So I ran apt-get update, and apt-get upgrade upgrade from tty1. Gnome sessions got working. Then upgraded (still via tty1, to be sure) from 16.04 to 18.04. When restarting to finish the upgrade, I got some ugly red error msgs on booting. Have to admit, did study them. They said something in the general mean of "cant start default welcome session to 18.04". So once again I tried recovery mode - > back to normal boot. It seems it did the trick, so far the computer seems operational (did not restarted it since). I am really interested how the final 18.04->20.04 will go when the time comes.

    TL;DR: some dark magic with non-graphic ttyX and recover modes worked. 32bit system running.

    edit: external monitor is not recognized when connected. When restarted with monitor already plugged-in, system will freeze on login and requires booting via recovery mode again to make it work. Ghost in the mashine, really...

    Let's take the guesswork out of the process. Please copy
    Code:
    sudo lshw -sanitize > lshw.txt
    and paste it onto the command line, run it and post lshw.txt in CODE tags. It will show all hardware details.
