ACPI is the successor/combination of plug & play, advanced
power management, et al...

If you have disabled ACPI and it did not make a difference, I
would say the clue it's giving you is ACPI is not causing the error.

APIC, on the other hand, has to do with interrupt timing. Do you
see any options in your BIOS for enabling/disabling/changing
APIC's slices or timing?

Are you overclocking your RAM or CPU[s]?
