I am seeing the same with an ACER F5000.

pci=nomsi let the machine still boot.

I tried a bit and I think I got it, for me it's this one:

commit 78b7611c4a1e3ff008abc4751b566cb533d68f3d
Author: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
Date: Fri Jun 1 00:46:33 2007 -0700

My problem: The laptop does not have an serial output device, I try to
set up a fire wire console, but might have cable/HW problems.

What else can I do to help?
What do you need?

Thanks,

Thomas
