Has anyone got a quick idea why this fails right off?
Does this mean I need to set the same flags as what Adi Pircalabu suggested
in the "help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" thread?
" When the boot menu appears, try this:
- escape to loader prompt
- set hint.acpi.0.disabled="1"
- set hint.atkbd.0.flags="0x9"
Would this help me? In this case I'm lost here.
