Unhappy Fedora 8 Test 3 Live Freeze on Boot

I just go a new HP DC7800pS8/E6550 (vPro) desktop PC with Windows Vista on it.
I want to install Fedora and downloaded the Fedora 8 Test 3 LiveDVD x86_64.
But it freeze during boot and last line displayed is:

ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (0000:00)

This also happens with the i386 version!
Can anyone tell me why the PC is not booting correctly!!!???

I would also recommend trying fedora 7, but you may find that adding the boot parameters

noapic acpi=off

fix that problem. Either way you should submit a bug report to bugzilla along with your smolt profile.

Thanks, adding the boot commands "noapic acpi=off' worked!
Case closed.

Are you able to boot any other versions of linux on this computer? From your description it sounds like there is some hardware not being recognized by the kernel. It may also be a bug that you discovered in F8 Test 3 and you can report this at http://bugzilla.redhat.com.

As heeven mentioned there are a lot of kernel parameters that deal with ACPI. I found a Kernel Parameters for ACPI/APIC on SUSE with decent descriptions of the parameters. Here is another from the Linux Kernel Documentation. My suggestion would be to start with acpi=off to see if you can boot any further.
