I get an error upon installation:

MP-Bios bug:8254 timer is not connected to IO-APIC

Is this a bad error and if it is how do I fix it?


This error appears to be a minor bug, your hardware vendor may have provided a bios update that may take care of it. In the mean time if you are not experiencing any resulting errors it can be ignored. Otherwise try adding either noioapic or nomodeset boot options.


BIOS isn't a thing you should mess up with. If you really want to update, go to the mainboard manufacturer's website and download it from there
