I know that there has been discussion about ACPI support by some motherboards and not by others, but I'm still confused. I have tried installations on machines with old MSI and Intel motherboards and although the ACPI supports the POWER BUTTON feature in both cases, no other ACPI data are reported. That seems to be par for the course and I just accepted that these two were just too old to be fully supported.

However, I booted up my Windows machine using the USB stick from my NAS and it too only supports the POWER BUTTON. No FAN STATE, COOLING MODE, THERMAL STATE, CPU TEMP. This machine has a Gigabyte GA-N650SLI-DS4L motherboard that was manufactured just last year and the BIOS is by Award.

It looks like even recent implementations of ACPI do not always work. So, what is the actual determinant for full support of all ACPI features?

(BTW, I did try adding acpi=force but to no avail.)

Thanks.
