If I try that while doing an 'unset acpi_load' at the booter, it hangs
in the same place.

However, disabling it and leaving ACPI still enabled worked.  Booted up
fast, but then I started getting errors as it tried to access the
CD-ROM.  Going to try it with some other 5.x series CDs I have around at
home when I get out of work.

Still, that is _really_ weird though.
