This is using SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 32bit system. After rebooting, the system can be booting up, with the error messages as attached.

Looks like it got to do with timer, and btw, how to boot it up with no-apic option? In the long run, what need to be done to stop this problem?

Just try booting with noapic appended to the kernel command-line.

and update make and model of your Linux box.

I have found something related to your problem.

There are a number of known bugs in implementations of APIC systems, especially with concern to how the 8254 is connected. Defective BIOSes may not set up interrupt routing properly, or provide incorrect ACPI tables and Intel Multiprocessor Specification tables. Finally, the APIC can also be a cause of system failure when the operating system does not support it properly. On older operating systems, people often had to disable the I/O and local APICs. While this is not possible anymore due to the prevalence of simultaneous multi-threading and multi-core systems, the bugs in the firmware and the operating systems are now a rare occurrence.
