Almost certainly a motherboard problem -- the ACPI tables are part of
the BIOS, which is held on the motherboard.

Try looking for an update. Or try apci=ht : this is documented to be the
minimum necessary to get a Pentium 4 with hyperthreading to actually
hyperthread, so it might get you running with two cores.

Also try pci=noacpi and acpi=noirq.

Hope this helps,

James.
