4.4 - x86_64 on HP ML150 G3 - Kernel panic

Post by pgluke » 2006/10/26 07:32:55

I tried to Install the 4.4 x86_64 Version on a HP ML150 G3 with two Dualcore Xeons.
Installer starting has stopped with following error:
kernel panic: not syncing: nmi watchdog
in panic.c:118

Installation of 4.4 i386 works fine.

Any ideas? Thanks.

To whom it may be interested: I finally was successfull in installing Centos x86_64 on this specific hardware.

To solve the problem cited in my previous post you have to access the bios settings, select the "Advanced" menu and disable the "8042 keyboard emulator support".

To be true the comment to this option in bios panel clearly suggests to disable the option if willing to install "red hat" x86_64 version, but if you do not get there by chance you would never know it.

Cheers,
