Description

My Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe machine was running OK (except for the stuttering audio) with ACPI 3.07. I did the Fast Upgrade to 3.08, changed nothing else, and tried to reboot. It hung on the boot logo.

I'm back on 3.07 now.

I've attached the acpi.log file generated when using ACPI 3.07. Note that I have an LSILogic dual-channel SCSI card installed, but it is unusable at present: I tried the REMAP commands, but then the machine never reaches the desktop; for now that is unimportant, since I can manage just fine with only the SATA drive.

It was the same with the Testcase build, BUT...

While still on ACPI 3.07 and having trouble getting UniAud? working OK, I discovered that at least one other person with a similar motherboard was not experiencing the UniAud? problem. When we compared various settings, I discovered that he did not have the /!NOD parameter, so I tried removing it too. To my surprise, the machine still booted from the SATA drive (although it did not detect the SCSI adapter and attached devices), the HD Audio now used IRQ22 or 23 (forget which) -- no longer sharing an IRQ, and the UniAud? problem was partly solved: no more lockups on playing second YouTube? video, but still frequent stuttering. I tried the REMAP directives in ACPI.CFG but was unable to make the SCSI devices work.

When I upgraded to ACPI 3.08, the /!NOD parameter was still absent from the ACPI.PSD line. Without that parameter the machine hung at the boot logo.

I have now restored the /!NOD parameter and, with an updated UniAud? driver, everything works fine using ACPI 3.08: although the HD Audio is again sharing IRQ11 with the SCSI adapter and the OHCI USB controller, the sound works without lockups or stuttering, and I have my SCSI devices back again.

Thus it seems that 3.07 somehow permitted dispensing with the /!NOD parameter, whereas many earlier ACPI versions, and now 3.08 again, require it.

For work your SCSI device with high IRQ you need learn options of your scsi driver, it can has options /IRQ:xxxx. Or use REMAP directive from acpi.cfg
