soory no no other usb device here. I mean that the internal CF/SD/MMC
reader runs with usb-storage too.

I disable ACPI in bios and boot with noacpi I get the message:

spurious 8259A Interrupt 7

But usb storage seems to work ( the usb-storage found the internal
CF/SD/MMC card reader.

But then the System is frozen. No reaktion from system on attaching the
usb stick or making any keypress. SYSREQ does not work.

Nothing in the logfiles.

> How about booting with noapic?

I have try this but it will not do :

First try :

booting with noapic :

There were much CPU(0) APIC error's so the System was unusable.

APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)

After disable apic in bios and boot with noapic ext3 can not mount my
filesystem and there is an oops. The oops was not logged so I can't make
an backtrace.

So it seems that the usb-storage problem seems an acpi problem but
without acpi the systems is unusable.

I hope this will help you.

thx for help
