Hi, I've got the same chipset in my mobo. There is
some kind of problem with ACPI, so its better to boot
without it (either disable it in bios/either choose
the right boot option).

Later on you will have some more problems with onboard
NIC and (if you have one) nvidia gfx.

Write to me if you will have the problems that I think
you will.
