Does the EIP of the oops start with 0010 or 0050?

When I try shutdown -h 0, after stopping all md devices, the
machine dumps a full screen of registers/stack and hangs,
without turning off the power.

screenshot showing the stack dump etc. at

Hope this help.

Another report of this bug (though for Red Hat Linux 6.1), removing '-p' from
the halt script did not help.

Motherboard:  Gigabyte GA586AX F2
CPU:  AMD K6-3/400
BIOS:  Award 4.51PG
Video card:  Diamond Viper AGP V550 8MB  1.95e4904
Hard drive:  Western Digital 20 Gb 7200 RPM EIDE WD205BA
Network card:  Intel Etherexpress Pro+ pci 10/100

Customer shuts down with 'shutdown -h now'. Process hangs at 'Power Down' output
line. The only way out is to Ctrl+Alt+Del, which prints "Stopping all md
devices" then reboots.

Turned off all APM features in BIOS, booted with apm=off as boot parameter.
Still same behavior.

I got this error also, that was because i has both AT and ATX power support on
the motherboard. But the motherboard was connected to the Powersupply with a AT
connector. When the machine tried to turn it self off.. then this error appeard.
Could this be some of yours problem?

This is, in its roots, a bios problem.
