Yes, but none of the *Lock key work either.

When trying to install without ACPI, I managed to get past the bridge, 
but then I got a Fatal trap:

igb0: Reserved 0x20000 bytes for rid 0x10 type 3 at 0xce260000
igb0: Reserved 0x4000 bytes for rid 0x1c type 3 at 0xce200000
igb0: attempting to allocate 3 MSI-X vectors (10 supported)

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 0; apic id = 00
fault virtual address   = 0x18
fault code              = supervisor read data, page not present
instruction pointer     = 0x8:0xffffffff803e127d
stack pointer           = 0x10:0xffffffff810d8830
frame pointer           = 0x10:0x3
code segment            = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b
                        = DPL 0, pres 1, long 1, def32 0, gran 1
processor eflags        = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0
current process         = 0 (swapper)
trap number             = 12
panic: page fault

I'll talk to the BIOS guy again, but if someone has some other ideas, 
I'd be grateful.
