comment What is the impact of the nolapic parameter on a multiprocessor laptop?
I just noticed this problem as well. My Asus U46E (dual core i7) won't boot without the nolapic flag either (generic kernel of 11.10). It will boot with the flag, but only show 1 cpu. It is a bummer that half of the performance is wasted. Hope they can fix the bug sooner.

comment Dualboot ubuntu 11.10 and windows 7. Want to make sure grub resume the right OS after hibernate
I believe you're right that chkdsk is caused by the grub send the computer to the 'wrong' OS after hibernate. After taking zpletan's suggestion, that situation never happened and I have never seen a chkdsk. Kudos to zpletan.

Yes, you answered my question, mostly. I think it would be even more foolproof in GRUB to clearly mark either the computer is coming back from hibernate, or from a fresh start (shutdown/restart).

comment Dualboot ubuntu 11.10 and windows 7. Want to make sure grub resume the right OS after hibernate
Right after I installed both OSes, it did make some trouble for me. W7 went into ChkDisk a couple times after I booted into it. I was wondering what was going on, then I realized it has to be the hibernate issue. I was so scared that I turned off hibernate. Now with zpletan's suggestion, I can (almost) safely turn hibernate back on.

Thanks for the suggestion. It worked as you said. It would largely satisfy my needs, with one minor drawbacks. If I need to change the default boot OS, I better know that it arrived GRUB via shutdown, not hibernate. But that's minor. Thanks a lot!!!
