It looks like you have DMI enabled.  Is that from SeaBIOS?  I turned it
config.h since it looks emulator specific.  Kevin or Rudolf, do you use
when you boot XP?
[Jason, Wang] I really have no idea about DMI, and I also checked the
SeaBIOS configuration file and gained nothing. Watson, what is the path
of the file"config.h"?

It turns out that you can't load multiple tables into acpiexec, which
can be
a pain.  I patched the source and replaced one table, then I can load

[Jason, Wang] how did you do that? Now I really need some tools to debug
the acpi.
