I was trying to install CentOS 6.4 a workstation with an Abit AB9 motherboard on a machine that had been running 5.9

Installation completed, but upon boot, it hangs hard after

acpiphp: ACPI Hot Plug PCI Controller Driver version 0.5
ipmi message handler version 39.2

  • Try adding the following kernel parameters and see if the 6.4 kernel boots:

    ipmi_si.tryacpi=0 ipmi_si.trydmi=0 ipmi_si.trydefaults=0

  • I had used the the 6.3 net installer disk (and the 6.4 repo) which I noticed had kernel 2.6.32-279, so I retrieved that kernel from the vault and it works.

    The 279 and earlier kernels don’t display any ipmi messages during boot (in dmesg)
    The system is not ipmi capable I don’t believe, should I be looking there?

    Try adding the following kernel parameters and see if the 6.4 kernel boots:

    ipmi_si.tryacpi=0 ipmi_si.trydmi=0 ipmi_si.trydefaults=0
