Alot of the cheatcodes are broken by HD install.... but some still do work.

I think I have fixed this issue on other machine by disabling APM all together (not really needed if ACPI is active anyways from what I understand)..

pass the noapm cheatcode the the kernel and see if that solves your problem :)

Also....the following boot flags have no relevance to a HD install: rw ramdisk_size=100000 desktop=wmaker
