Hi all,

I'm trying to boot from 8-BETA2 DVD in order to install it on an HP
Pavilion DV7-1199EF Laptop, but I get this error message:

run_interrupt_driven_hooks: still waiting after 60 seconds for xpt_config

This is repeated a few times then installation stops and debugging
console opens, see below (typed by hand)

panic: run_interrupt_driven_config_hooks: waited too long
cpuid = 0
KDB: enter: panic
[thread pid 0 tid 100000 ]
Stopped at         kdb_enter+0x3d: movq        $0,0x687f60(%rip)
db> bt
Tracing pid 0 tid 100000 td 0xffffffff80c11fe0
kdb_enter() at kdb_enter+0x3d

run_interrupt_driven_config_hooks() at run_interrupt_driven_config_hooks+0x117
mi_startup() at mi_startup+0x59

Any help is appreciated !!

Much Thanks
