Done 100% but system cannot boot, getting stuck at ACPI:

ACPI Warning: 32/64X length mismatch in Gpe1Block: 0/32
(20101209/tbfadt-625)
ACPI Warning: Optional field Gpe1Block has zero address or length:
0x0000000000000102C/0x0 (20101209/tbfadt-655)
...
...
...
...
...
acpi0: <LENOVO TP-7L> on motherboard


It hangs there... the same place the 8.2-RC was getting stuck!
