Install 6.4 from DVD on DELL Optiplex 755 (Core 2 DUE E6550 CPU with 2GB 
memory) always panic at
last stage of boot.
Is this a hardware specific (this machine only) issue? or is it a known 
hardware problem for DELL Optiplex 755?

Disable ACPI does not help. Also noticed that 6.4 did not detect second 
core on this machine.
