Hello Myles, Kevin and others
I've been implementing the ACPI for the ep80579 and so far it is not
going very well. Linux refuses to boot unless I use acpi=off or acpi=ht
as boot parameters. acpi=ht seems to display my ACPI ioports in
proc/ioports as expected ( the ioports addresses are all mapped to the
ACPI BAR ). Without to disable acpi the kernel complains that the
0xE0000000 range is not a reserved range and the MMCONF is not
supported and then hangs. Using acpi=noirq still hangs so I believe the
problem is not related to the acpi irqoverride.
The DSDT been dumped from the legacy BIOS using acpidump and this is
what I am including in the build process to test. Actually I've based my
code on the mainboard\intel\eagleheigths.
I wanted to discard the linux problem so far and concentrate on Windows
XP install. I've been disabling the ACPI ( pressing F7 in early install
) and it goes well until "Starting windows..." then I get a BSOD : STOP:
0x0000007B (0xF8980524, 0xc0000034, 0x0000000, 0x00000000).
This error indeed point to "Inaccessible Boot Device" and the second
argument 0xc0000043 points to "Status Object Name Not Found"
This post is quite old and nothing have been answered to it since July
2008. You probably been able to fix that issue. What is related to
missing floppy disk controller or something else?
