I think at this point, you're on your own. I'm not sure ACPI can be
repeatedly disabled and enabled:

-d isn't removing the interrupt handler, which isn't suprising.

Your system started up OK with ACPI so the answer to this will be:

Don't do that.

AE_REGION_LIMIT errors are almost always bugs in the DSDT. You can
probably fix it yourself.
