it looks like some problem with core2 duo bios...

some had been successful with these boot parameters:
all-generic-ide irqpoll pci=nommconf

others disabling wsb keyboard and mouse in the bios, others solved their problem disabling APIC in the BIOS.

you can see much more info here:

I guess I was first to suggest the pci=nommconf parameter (very first post). Seems it worked. Seems that points should fly to me (as well).

ravenpl,

You are correct.  I apologize.  Screwed up the posts in my head as to which one Aida2 was saying didn't work initially and so wrote yours off right away.  Your comment should actually be selected as the solution.  Thanks for the catch and I'll try to be more careful in my reading thru these Q's in the future.
