  [Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3] Unable to boot without workarounds

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My system won't boot. As a side effect of using workaround 1 described
  below it detects only one CPU core and won't shut down completely, I
  have to hold power button for few seconds to power PC off. Tested F5g
  BIOS but no change.

  Upstream URL: http://marc.info/?l=linux-acpi&m=136069746628268&w=2

  WORKAROUND 1: Boot with acpi=off and nolapic.

  WORKAROUND 2: Turn off AMD C1E in the BIOS.

  According to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI I tried booting it
  with acpi=ht (also with acpi=ht AND nolapic), but not to avail. Quote:
  'If acpi=off works and acpi=ht fails, then the issue is in the ACPI
  table parsing code itself, or perhaps the SMP code. '

  I will also attach files mentioned on the DebuggingACPI wiki page.
