BEWARE BIOS ver. > 2.00
Acer has recently updated BIOS for Acer Aspire 5102WLMi to 2.60 (see their
site for more detailed info). I've found that after upgrading BIOS from 2.00
to 2.60 FreeBSD kernel hangs on boot even before Copyright message. Unloading
ACPI module has no effect.
In my case I've downloaded and installed good ol' 2.00 version, so I can boot
again. Has anyone found/solved this issue?
Yours truly, WBR, Paul Argentoff.
