Subject: [gentoo-user] Laptop fails boot on battery
Date: Mon, 23 Jun 2008 22:46:09
I have an Asus Z92F laptop - a modification of Asus A6F model

ICH7 chipset
CoreDuo T2250
1,5GB DDR2
Intel 950 graphics
ATA100 HD 80GB

My problem with it is that it fails to boot into linux when working only 
on battery. When I plug the power supply and do a fresh boot kernel 
loads properly.
Boot proces freezes when kernel enumerates block devices, it is unable 
to identify my hard drive.

I've been trying with different kernel versions (2.6.20 - 2.6.24), and 
kernel settings - no luck - the only way to boot into linux is to 
connect to power supply.

I'll appreciate any advice
