Hah! I thought it was a typo on the list ! My reasoning: the first one 
was apic why not the second?

I will first try the correct "noacpi" on both machines.  The photo! is a 
novel idea but I'll try to type the output so you can share it around.
It's about 15-20 lines that remain onscreen so I should be able to type 
them right. Wish I could print to a file I could pick up later but I 
guess with no OS going ya can't write to a disk very well , or can you? 
hmmm is there that capability in the bootloader?  I guess you would have 
said something if so.
Ok, back in a while,  Glad to be of help and Thanks,  Howard
