[Bug 1073179] Re: Ubuntu Kernel does not boot on Compaq 6820s


Ekhard, as per
an update is available for your BIOS (F.0D). If you update to this, does
it change anything?

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Thank you for your understanding.
