UPDATE: I found for me it was the Intel 3945abg wireless card that was causing the BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0! message to appear.

All I did was execute

cd /root && sudo mv /etc/modprobe.d/ipw3945 .

Now the system successfully boots the generic kernel just fine. Again this was a dell precision m65 with a Core 2 duo.
