Re: freeze in bootup

Maybe the bios is buggy or is it apm...thank god for journaling...

Isn't A08 a bit old? My i2500 is A10, and I thought the 8100s were using the same numbers (though the BIOS appears to be different). I'd check for a BIOS upgrade first. As for bios/apm being buggy - apm definitely doesn't work on the 2500. Try ACPI.
