Acquired the same board Opteron 242. Experienced the
same panic using acpi with 5.2 and 5.2.1 RC.
I went into the BIOS, then 'Advanced BIOS Features'
and changed 'MPS Version Control for OS' _from_ 1.4 to
1.1. This enabled the second CPU.
Using the stock 5.2 install-CD will make the board
panic if it's soft-rebooted (like shutdown -r now). So
I had to swicth it completely off and on again.
I have just cvsup'ed to current as of Feb. 13'th 2004
approx. 13.00 GMT, and the above mentioned hard reboot
apperantly is _not_ necessary.
I'm using BIOS ver. 1.1.
I tried to subscibe to the amd64-list, but did not yet
receive any verification.
Hope this helps.
This was purely trial-and-error, so I was very pleased
with the fact that I didn't have to use the i386-port.
