Thank you for your suggestion.

Unfortunately, booting with disable_mtrr_trim leads to a kernel panic:

[<c0103abb>] kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x1c

---[ end trace 34615b445589fbb6 ]---
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
I am attaching the kernel config file. The system boots fine if I
remove "disable_mtrr_trim" from lilo.conf (and rerun lilo).

Thank you for any help,

James
