I am currently trying to install debian on a new server that uses a

Any ideas as how to get around this.
Google suggests passing "noapic" to the kernel at boot time. It can be
worth a try :-?
What Debian version are you installing... lenny, squeeze?
I have tried using "noapic" at boot time but it still hangs at Hyper
Also I am installing lenny.
I don't like workarounds like this, but... how about disabling HT in
BIOS? Supermicro boards use to have a "enable/disable" switch for that
setting. If the installation can proceed normally, then you can toggle on
again when it finishes.
If you prefer to be more conservative (like me) you can also try to load
a LiveCD of Lenny and see what happens.
Also, check if there is an updated BIOS revision for your board. If yes,
I would ask Supermicro to get some feedback before applying it, but it
could be another path to try :-?
