At this stage everything hangs up again...
I am facing the same problem for my HP Pavilion dv4-1114nr 1.41" Notebook.
It has Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 2.0 GHz 2 Processors. I believe its a 64 bit processor.
I am getting "Kernel Panic - not syncking" when I am trying to Install RHEL 5.2 x86_64 OS
and everytime it says that "The BIOS handoff is falied (BIOS bug)".
Can anyone help me to resolve this issue?
