T430u: Linux doesn't boot without acpi=off

Hi, I'm having troubles to boot Fedora 24 on my T430u.

 

It only boots when I add acpi=off on grub command line.

After booting, I cannot see how much battery is remaining, and I suppose it's because of acpi=off parameter.

 

 

Without acpi=off parameter, it gets stuck after showing the following dmesg:

 

(...)

ACPI: Added _OSI(Module Device)

ACPI: Added _OSI(Processor Device)

ACPI: Added _OSI(3.0 _SCP Extensions)

ACPI: Added _OSI(Processor Aggregator Device)

ACPI: Executed 1 blocks of module-level executable AML code

ACPI: [Firmware Bug]: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored

ACPI Error: [\_PR_.CPU0._PPC] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND (20160422/psargs-359)

Additional Info:

 

Updated firmware to Version: H6ET98WW (2.16 ), but nothing changed.

Tested Fedora 23 with kernel 4.2.3, and Fedora 24 with kernel 4.5.5 and 4.8.4. All them have the same issue.

Greetings @lseki , did you ever find a resolution to this issue? I'd like to install Fedora 25 or Ubuntu 16.04 on my Lenovo ThinkPad T430u

Hi @WesleyTech

 

I didn't try Fedora 25 yet, so I'm not sure if it will work. I'll be glad if you could give us a feedback.

 

Ubuntu worked fine for me, probably it's some Fedora specific kernel config breaking things.

I'm still using Fedora 24 despite the issue because it's my favourite Smiley Happy.

Re: T430u: Linux doesn't boot without acpi=off

Thanks for the reply! I did some research on this and I found A LOT of information around the web discussing issues with acpi due to a regression in the Linux kernel. From what I've read, that regression has now been fixed & patched, so nowadays with a modern kernel version, we should do okay with running Linux on notebooks like the T430u which use an acpi controlled battery/power. I will be installing Ubuntu 16.04 on my T430u and ensuring that I have the most up to date kernel version supported.

Re: T430u: Linux doesn't boot without acpi=off

Same here with ubuntu, latest working kernel is 4.4.0-103-generic - any newer including the latest 4.15.0-29 will stop at: 

 

ACPI : EC: EC started

Anyone found a solution?

Re: T430u: Linux doesn't boot without acpi=off

This issue really sucks!

I discovered that if you pass the boot option "noapic" instead of "acpi=off" the system will boot correctly with battery and suspend (when closing the lid) support enabled.

Tested on kernel 4.18.12-200.fc28.x86_64 (fedora 28).

It the same kind of error that I have https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/Thinkpad-T440-T450-T460-Bios-ACPI-Errors/td-p/4239132

 

How can we contact Lenovo developers ?
