Linux hangs on the HP dc7700

I was working with Altiris the other day and trying to get the HP dc7700 to boot Linux. The machine did not get too far before freezing. After some research I found out that you can add pci=nommconf as a option during boot and the machine boots properly.

Boot: linux pci=nommconf

Hope this helps someone.

Dusting off the site.

I think it’s about time I started making regular posts to this site. The last post was May 15th, 2004! Anyway, just installed WordPress and mostly ported my site design over to it. I got a few ideas of some quick posts I can make in the future. Enough rambling about nothing, come back soon.
