      Hi Eddie,

      can you explain this a little bit more. What have you tried to do and what exactly does not work. Not booting the USB Stick, Installer fails?

      Hi Qwe,

      can you tell me what kernel panic error message you get?
      Have you tried to boot the USB-Stick via UEFI or old MBR method?

        It wasn’t kernel panic, the error is “Fatal trap 12: Page fault within kernel mode”, then it reboots. This is after choosing the installation method.

        I guess I’m booting from MBR, sinse I’ve never heard of UEFI and this machine is rather old (~6 years old).

          Try enabling IO APIC in your motherboard BIOS and play with your acpi settings there.
          There is also an Acpi disable feature when you boot up the stick which is worth a try.
          There seems to be an adress conflict between your mainboard and kernel drivers.

            Thanks!
            Enabling “ACPI APIC support” in BIOS solved it.

    TIo esto no tira ni para atrás, ni usando dd, ni usando unetbooting y la explicación del manual es demasiado pobre y genérica, empiezo a sospechar que nadie sabe instalarlo.

    sorry I forgot that this is in english, that doesn’t work and my Bios does not let me config ACPI and unetbooting doesn’t work too

      Have you tried booting at the kernel prompt with:
      set hint.apic.0.disabled=”1″
      boot
      or
      set hint.acpi.0.disabled=”1″
      boot
