    Unhappy boot problems


    My system does not boot while there's any usb device plugged in. Grub is ok, but after choosing to boot linux, initrd prints some it's things, after that screen goes black and computer does nothing. Only fan runs fast as system counts some hard operation.

    usb

    When I unplug device situation does not change. It doesn't print any error message, it stucks forever. The last I got when I removed any boot parametres and rebooted was something with acpi configuration. But I think that is a last "good" thing

    thats weird. it should display error message. at what point it get stuck?
    did you try acpi=off or noacpi parameter?

    its Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. a few BIOS' do not support it. try to disable it using noacpi option.
