mp bios bug 8254 timer not connected to ioapic
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 9, 2006
It looks like many others are having the same problem with various distros.
When trying to load linux (fedora 4 in my case) the system halts at either install or boot.
with the error: MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to io-apic.
Fedora 5 Fails at install with no message. It just hangs.
After some research, the problem seems to be related to the NVIDIA chip set. (590) in my case.
The NVIDA web site has a patch posted. The web site indicates that this patch will be incorporated in newer kernels. However, I used the latest 2.6.17 kernel with the same results. Thanks to the UP kernel I was able to get the system running with only one processor detected
After surfing the web for an answer, I am still confused. Is it a problem with the NVIDIA chip set, The Motherboard Vendors implementation, the BIOS or what?.
Detail of my setup:
Motherboard: Asus M2N32-SLI Delux - wireless edition
BIOS Version: 0603
NVIDIA 590 Chip Set
MPBios bug 8254 timer not connected to IOAPIC

I have had a problem booting to Ubuntu 8.1. Earlier Hardy is fine. As per below, I have some strange Bios phenomena that is somehow related. I get the following errors booting with 8.1:
MP-Bios bug 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC followed by a kernel panic.
I have been experimenting, and strangely, if I make "any random change" to my BIOS and save, just prior to booting the CD, It will boot fine. (I disccovered this while updating the Bios) I can then install, but even a hard drive boot fails unless I do the random Bios change beforehand. This is not a CD issue. I believe that this may be a new kernel issue as a debian Dream Linux release candidate has the same bizarre behavior. I imagine that I can not be the only one experiencing this problem. My motherboard is a 2007 quality DFI board with NVIDIA GForce chipset. The processor is an AMD X2 5000+ andI have 2 Gb DDR2 memory. I would fault DFI except that this board was fine for earlier Ubuntu re

The "MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC" error message
shows up on boot on at least one of my RHEL servers, and I'm not quite
sure what to make of it. My understanding of the situation is that the
timer is located elsewhere on the motherboard than where the kernel
looks for it. Is this correct?
I've come across people suggestin one should disable APIC by adding
"noapic" to the kernel boot options, but which consequences does this
imply - in SNP setups only one CPU will be used by the kernel?
PS. I posted this question on a RHEL mailing list, but since I didn't get any replies I'm posting it here too.
MPBIOS BUG 8254 timer not connected use noapic option to boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 15, 2007
I believe many of you have come across the same problem. Maybe most of you used some Ubuntu version. What I am talking about is the "MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected" message that one would get when booting a live CD with a Linux distro.
The workaround is to use noapic option when booting. Use the F6 key (for some distros this can be F4 I believe) to change to boot command line and add noapic. This would get you going.
This is as much info as a newbie would need to overcome this problem. If you are a geek and you want to know more about this read on.
The story behind the message is as follows. The kernel tries to find the timer that syncs the IO devices and fails. The reason is that with the latest hardware (motherboards) have moved the timer to a different place. The problem is that the kernel is not yet up-to-date with this change (although the kernel developers are) and fails during the check. If you are curious to see the details you can download the latest kernel

I tryed looking it up in the ubuntu help place but it was almost mind bombing (probably bc still waking up) it was about setting it up not connecting it pretty much
