I am trying to install Ubuntu server on an HP ProLight DL380p, I am getting several different types of ACPI error, e.g.
AE_NOT_EXIST _Evaluating, _PMM (20190816/power_meter-325), No handler for Region [POWR] (00000000000aa4ccbe7) [IPMI] (20190816/evregion-127), etc
Running dmesg does report an error
ACPI Bios warning (bug): invalid length for FADT/Pm1aControlBlock:32 using default 16 (20190816/tbfadt-669)
No other 'errors' are reported
Most of the advice I have seen of the subject advises to turn ACPI off in the grub boot script.
This being a server install , it does not seem to uses grub, i.e. no /etc/default/grub, no obvious grub menu on boot etc(Please correct me if I am wrong).
I am used to install Ubuntu on desktop systems, this is my first headless server
The comments on desktop Ubuntu system with ACPI errors seems to imply its a MS required feature.
- Its been suggested that I can ignore it, is this correct ?
- Have I correctly installed Ubuntu ?
- Do I have a duff computer ?
The machine is listed as being able run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 Bit, see https://certification.ubuntu.com/hardware/201309-14186
