Okay, if disabling apic stops doubletalk, then did you try the other
suggestion instead of getting someone to disable ACPI in BIOS settings?
One of the things that ACPI does is dynamic assignment of interrupts (IRQs).
Those kernel messages showed failures while trying to do that dynamic IRQ
Disabling ACPI will tell the kernel to assign interrupts the old fashioned
way, like before ACPI was available.
If that doesn't work then are there any other specific error messages? Does
the system proceed to install and just not speak, or what exactly is
