Comment 242 for bug 57502

Not like that it wont. I have had luck with irqpoll and all-generic-ide
boot options. But they have to be appended to the kernel line without "".

My bootline looks like this when I'm trying to install (i.e. wants to
get all the information on what goes wrong that I can):
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=/dev/sda1 ro irqpoll
