Comment 11 for bug 459198

I got it to boot... entered in recovery mode (only got it the second time, the first time it stopped somewhere, the second, it asked me what to recover and I said to resume normal boot), edited grub file to make the "normal" entry look like:
"linux (...) ro quiet noapic nolapic splash" (so basically added noapic and nolapic) and it worked.

You should check what's wrong and let us know when can we use all APIC and LAPIC functionalities.

I'm not sure if it's related, but my wireless card wasn't detected... I'm gonna check what's up....
