Sounds like a bad kernel config except for the part about the 5.2.1
ISO... have you tried it without acpi?
May be useful to try the current mailing list too...
Try including a copy of the dmesg from 5.1 and your kernel config
You should be able to boot into 5.1 by going to the loader console or
whatever it called unloading everything and loading the previous
kernel... note: some things will not work when you do this becuase
some changes in some things... you will need to recompile the world
for that kernel...
