ACPI 3.09 blocks boot

Reported by: guest Owned by: pasha
Priority: major Milestone: Release version 3.15
Component: ACPI PSD Version: 3.09
Keywords: Intel GM965, DUO core 2 Cc:

Description

I have eCS20RC4 installed. On a portable : Intel DUO core 2 L7500 @ 1,66 GHz Chipset : Intel GM965 Bios setting : Duo core processing enabled USB : legacy support enabled Working kernel : 14.104a_SMP In config.sys : 5 lines BASEDEV=USBUHCD.SYS 2 lines BAVEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS All other USB lines are remmed-out (otherwise systems hangs on BASEDEV=USBD.SYS) Version of USB drivers = 10.1062 APM is confiured, and gives no problems (as far as I know)

My main problem is : I do not have USB-active (no USB-spport for USB-devices ! I would have corrected this.

Someone told me to try to activate ACPI. With ACPI I would have more change to activate USB.

But for activating ACPI I first needed to have SMP-kernel. So I switched form my "normal IBM 14.104 kernel to SMP 14.104a)

I replaced the original ACPI-drivers with these of "acpi-20080423.zip" V3.09. As mentionned is the ACPI.doc chapter 4 (Installation)

I have APM also active. In config.sys I added options /SMP /FS /APIC

I have a LOGS-1 (Boot fails) I removed OS2LOGO ACPI.PSD of debug\ is installed When I reboot I get only title /header ending with "Internal revision 14.104a_SMP"

I can not do any logging, because system does not start ! I need to rem-out the PSD=ACPI.PSD /SMP /FS /APIC line to be aible to boot again.

Anyone any suggestion ?

I seams to me that my kernel is hanging. The cursor is just one line under the text "Internal revision 10.104a_SMP" And when the system boots fine, the drivers that are booting appears in the middle of the screen.

I need SMP kernel for ACPI, isn't ? (I have read this in a documentation)

And I want to have ACPI to try to get USB-support enabled (this is my main goal)

When system "hangs" during boot : there is no harddisk activity !

Where I can see "LOG-1" ?

Usually, Core Duo + Intel chipset => /SMP /APIC and /CD

so.. read the dosc again, how to run in SMP APIC mode: try disable more devices, more drivers. Disable amouse, USB, etc. Then enable the devices one by one.

Who can give me some suggestions how what to desactivate in my config.sys? (I submitted me config.sys just before) Sorry, I am not an expert (yet) in this stuff.

Thanks

I just got the information from my HW vendor that ACPI used in this machine is 1.0B Maybe this may help to find a solution.

Make notes on paper what are you doing, make backup copies of the original files.

Use FileCommander? to manipulate with files: http://www.os2world.com/content/view/18051/2/

1) how to edit config.sys?

  • make backup copy of the file
  • start editor, open config.sys. add REM in the beginning of lines:

BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS -> REM BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS

BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS BASEDEV=USBUHCD.SYS BASEDEV=USBUHCD.SYS BASEDEV=USBUHCD.SYS BASEDEV=USBUHCD.SYS

DEVICE=E:\MMOS2\UNIAUD32.SYS /V DEVICE=E:\MMOS2\UNIAUD16.SYS /V /C

  • reboot
  • remove REM prefix to activate a driver

2) OK, let's move faster, http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=logs -> LOGS-1 - instructions how to catch output from debug version of ACPI.

how to install debug ACPI? download ACPI package, copy ACPI.PSD from debug\ directory to x:\OS2\BOOT\

make photos of the screen if boot stops, grab acpi log if the system booted to desktop.

  • Milestone changed from eCS 2.0 to Release version 3.11

REMming out all USB (BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS) does not solve the job !

I've remmed out also APM. => still the same.

REM out MMOS2 . .

I do not find the lines you suggest. I find : (see lines 49 , . . in my config.sys here attached ) DEVICE=C:\MMOS2\ssmdd.sys /S:64 /P:64 /H:256 /Q:1024 /E:1024
