Do you have boot log or acpi dump?

I suspected that could be other problem. intel system before
sandbridge does not have IIO.
they will have ioh instead, and one ioh would connect to two cpu sockets.
but _PXM for root bus in dsdt only can return one value. Aka it is
acpi spec limitation.

for example, Sun x4800 8 sockets server would have bus 00, 40, 80, c0.
but _PXM will only return 0, 2, 3, 6.

Thanks
