[Bug 1329384] Re: [Dell PowerEdge R220] 12.04/14.04 Ubuntu Server 32 bit installer does not boot without acpi=off


I'd like to perform a bisect to figure out what commit caused this
regression. We need to identify the earliest kernel where the issue
started happening as well as the latest kernel that did not have this

Can you test the following kernels and report back? We are looking for
the first kernel version that exhibits this bug:

v3.8 final: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.8-raring
v3.9 final: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.9-saucy
v3.10 final: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.10-saucy
v3.11-rc1: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.11-rc1-saucy/

You don't have to test every kernel, just up until the kernel that first
has this bug.

Thanks in advance!

  [Dell PowerEdge R220] 12.04/14.04 Ubuntu Server 32 bit installer does
  not boot without acpi=off

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Trying to install Ubuntu Server on a brand new Dell R220 (released 2
  months ago).

  Tested multiple installers all from USB:
  - Ubuntu Server 12.04.4 LTS (i686) without any option: kernel panic
  - Ubuntu Server 14.04.4 LTS (i686) without any option: kernel panic
  - Ubuntu Server 12.04.4 LTS (amd64) without any option: works as expected (GOOD)

  The files attached are for a 12.04.4 (latest available as 6/6/14) installation.
  Kernel panic happened into acpi_ex_system_memory_space_handler.

  Tried some options:
  - acpi=ht: kernel panic
  - pci=noacpi: kernel panic

  WORKAROUND: Utilize kernel boot parameter:
