Bad EIP value/<0>Kernel panic - not syncing :Fatal exception in interrupt/Freespire


OK first i am rather new to Linux i got fed up with that other OS we won't speak of and decided to switch over from the dark side. Anyway my specs are as follows AMD64 3800+X2,ASUS A8S-X mobo,SiS 756 chipset,2G DDR400,Samsung 160G SATA,NEC DVD RW. Hope that is thorough enough. Ok i have been trying different Linux distros for about a week now and all run fine both live and on install SUSE 10.2,Fedora Core 6,Ubuntu 7.04,PCLinuxOS 2007 all that is EXCEPT Freespire i have it installed on my old 32 bit e-machines without a hitch and it is by far my favorite and i really would like to get it installed on my 64 bit system but for some reason it refuses to install or run Live whichever option i use i get the error message i mentioned in the subject line. I realize i most likley have not provided enough info bt being an admitted Linux noob i don't quite know what else to include. So to recap the message is...

Code: Bad EIP value
<0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt

then if locks up and i have to reboot.

ok ran diagnostics and this is what it says
Call Trace:
<e088e261> ata_interrupt=0x91/0x140 [libata]

Start from checking the latest version. If it doesn't work, report a bug. You won't fix that for youself. Looks like SATA problem.

Yes i thought so as well so i disabled my sata drive and used my WD 133/ATA but then i get disk image errors such as not an ISO file/file not found etc. Does not matter which disk i use i have 4/2 burnt and 2 from Freespire directly,same error. I believe i will give up on Freespire and stick to PCLinuxOS it works great on my machine.

Don't necessarily trust CD's because they are "commercially" pressed: About a year ago I received several Linspire produced Linspire CD's that refused to boot. I reported the the problem, complete w/ batch #'s, to them & got no useful (non-canned) response.
Caveat emptor.

commercialy pressed CD

Thanks for your response the only thing is i used one of the commercialy pressed disc's to install Freespire on my old eMachines w/ an AMD XP 3000+ and it went off without a hitch. I have been bouncing around the web and it seems that I am not alone in my Freespire woes there seem to be an inordinate amount of poeple who experience problems when trying to install that paticular OS more so than with the others i may be wrong but that is how it looks to me my own experience has been that Ubuntu 7.04,SUSE 10.2,Fedora Core 6 and PCLinuxOS 2007 all run and install fine on my 64 bit AMD machine. I am a admitted noob but it seems to be the proof is as they say in the pudding as far as Freespire goes in my experience. I have PCLinuxOS 2007 and Ubuntu 7.04 Fiesty Fawn installed on the computer in question in a dual boot configuration and am happy with that for now,maybe after i gain more experience i'll try Freespire again. Thanks again to the folks who have taken the time to respond to my thread and i look forward to being a part of the Linux community for a long time to come.

Welcome to LQ, normster.

Is "this same problem" a CD that's no good, or a "Bad EIP value" msg.?

Gentle hint: It's polite & helpful to give links to s/w & distros you mention. -- You do it once & save everyone who views your post the trouble of repeating the work of searching.

Cool Check RAM

I see this is a older thread - but just having this error 'Bad EIP Value' thought I add my two cents.

'Fixing what wasn't broken' - I was switching around RAM chips - and must have had a bad one. Luckly, I did find out which one it was.
