I've tried both noacpi and noapic but none works

About the hardware it has a adaptec aic-7890 scsi controller (Bios version
2.20A) and a emulex lp8000 (?)

The sinthom is the same: after loading vmlinuz screen goes black with a
blinking cursor on the top left of the screen

Define 'old'. Is this a piece of hardware where you'd want to use the
i586 install option to get things going? Some older boards had buggy acpi
issues so booting with noapci or possibly even noapic might help.
If you could give us some idea of the hardware we can probably offer better
