Trying to boot Debian Testing with the acpi-off flag by pressing e at the grub menu. It does seem to boot with acpi off. however at the login screen I can't put in my password. It's like the keyboard isn't working.
If I reboot normally tI;m able to type in my password. Anyone have any ideas?

I presume you mean acpi=off? Why do you want to disable ACPI?

Yes, disabling ACPI can do that sometimes:

I've set acpi=off sometimes but some hardware sensors would dissapear i assume. not sure if it's the correct way of setting ACPI walktree in off state to fix an extra driver being loaded in the wrong order..
