    Wrong BIOS is pretty fundamental -- the BIOS could have messed up many
    undocumented (and possibly write-once) register settings etc. The
    kernel can work around slighly broken ACPI tables or things like that,
    but if, say, undocumented write-only north bridge registers are wrong,
    not much we can do about that.

    Really you better just get the right BIOS on the board.
