Comment 0 for bug 1129511

Basic hardware info:

MSI notebook,
Model GT70-0NC-008US; tag under the battery shows GT70-0NC-494US
Win 8 64 bit was pre-installed
Intel Core i7-3610QM Processor, 2.3 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M
750GB HDD
16GB RAM
No raid

Am not running as a dual boot install.

Am running 64 bit version of Ubuntu 12.10.

As in summary, am unable to boot this system unless acpi=off and "quiet splash" is deleted from grub. This occurs with try it DVD, live USB and HDD installation. Also when installed to HDD.

I am running this as the only OS, NOT a dual boot.

I am able to boot, install and run 12.04 Precise 64 bit on this system, BIOS in legacy mode for install and running from HDD.

Following steps in Debugging ACPT - Ubuntu Wiki (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI) I have updated to the latest BIOS on the box.

With 12.10 installed to HDD tried booting with all options given in the Wiki with these results:

With acpi=off and "quiet splash" deleted, system boots ok and into usable environment. Note also that the Synaptics touchpad doesn't work even with Synaptiks package installed. Mouse works fine.

With acpi=noirq and "quiet splash" deleted system starts to boot and stops with the following as last line:

[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0x9904: Init table command not found: 0xA9

With pnpacpi=off and "quiet splash" deleted system starts to boot and stops with the following as last line, same as above:

[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0x9904: Init table command not found: 0xA9

With noapic and "quiet splash" deleted, system starts to boot and stops with the following as last line, same as above:

[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0x9904: Init table command not found: 0xA9

With nolapic and "quiet splash" deleted, system starts to boot and stops with the following as last line, same as above:

[drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0x9904: Init table command not found: 0xA9

In the troubleshooting steps I was unable to suspend or hibernate the system so am unable to supply a /var/log/kern.log.0 file. I have attached a file, msi_acpi_debug_files.tar.gz that has a copy of output from:

uname -a, sudo lspci -vvnn, sudo dmidecode.

I am unable to include a tarball of /proc/acpi directory as that directory doesn't exist - I presume that since I need to boot from the live USB with acpi off and/or having to boot without it the directory wasn't created.
