I have exact the same problem. I upgrade my ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 yesterday.
Now I can only boot my Acer Extensa 2902LMi with the grub option acpi=off.

The same problem I had had as I installed ubuntu 11.04 a few months ago.
See this bug report:

The problem with ubuntu 11.04 was gone after kernel update 2.6.38.
So perhaps the cause of the boot problem with ubuntu 11.10 is the same as by ubuntu 11.04.
If anybody know what was the change in kernel 2.6.38 for ubuntu 11.04 this change could help to solve the boot problem in ubuntu 11.10 too.
