And noapic especially severely limits your computer... no advanced irq
mapping or routing. For a server it is a no-go option, for a desktop it
might be a temporary workaround.
If noapic and/or acpi=off solves a problem, it is just a help to
pinpoint the problem, it is not a solution. The solution is to get the
manufacturer to fix their broken bios.
Speaking of that... maybe OpenFirmware would be a solution? Never tried
it myself on x86 class machines. Anyone with any experience?

The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
