MSI NF980-G65 KDL's due to ACPI.

Description

I have had a problem booting the various nightly images (49xxx series)due to a constant kdl that occurs on the hard drive initialization. The kdl states that it could not find a boot partitions. The motherboard is the MSI NF980-G65 with AMI Bios ver. 121509. If I disable the ACPI function in either the Bios, or the "safe mode" options on the Haiku boot, I can run, install, etc. any of the nightly versions. Tested on GCC2, hybrid 4 and GCC4. This is real hardware, no VM. System specs are:

CPU: AMD Phenom X4 955 Ram: 2 x 2gig IDE: Disabled. 3 Sata hardrives, 1 Sata cdrom.

Did you have the latest BIOS on your motherboard? This motherboard is known to have a not totally compliant ACPI implementation in factory's BIOS. If you never update your BIOS, please check if it doesn't need it now.

Replying to phoudoin:

I was running Haiku fine in the 39xxx series of nightlies (and the A1R3). Updated my Bios to the latest 1.4 with no change. It could be that the ACPI is not giving the correct Sata information to Haiku or that there something else. Since I don't have a lot of experience in "debug land" and that since I run a usb-based wireless keyboard/ mouse system (that dies every time I get a KDL), I don't really have the capability to troubleshoot this. (I might be able to find a PS/2 mouse and keyboard, but I will need a weekend to troubleshoot if I have to.) But I have narrowed it down to basically the ACPI module.
