failed to boot up with Sandy Bridge
We are using OpenIndiana build 151a. The hardware has Sandy Bridge CPU.
The system fails to boot after the splash screen shows up. Please see the attached screen shot. It is related to apix.
I found a comment at the release notes. It says that I have to add this at /etc/system
"set apix:apic_timer_preferred_mode = 0x0"
Also, issue 1723 looks like related too.
It suggests to add this "set apix_enable = 0" to /etc/system
However, I tried both of them, either one of them, still get the same failure. They reported that the workaround worked fine for them. But not for me. Not sure I am dealing with different problem or not.
Can somebody suggest us what to do? We can provide more information if necessary.
