On new Linux installation I tried on a less than a year old machine with a serial port,
on boot it stuck with this message
serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A

I bypassed it with this solution by putting acpi=off (and not pnpacpi=off)
on the kernel parameters in /boot/grub/grub.cfg

menuentry 'Linux Mint 11, 2.6.38-8-generic (/dev/sda5)' --class linuxmint --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
    set gfxpayload=$linux_gfx_mode
    insmod part_msdos
    insmod ext2
    set root='(/dev/sda,msdos5)'
    search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 0ba1e79f-6fe8-4c93-ad65-9c1c778ce4ff
    linux    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-8-generic root=UUID=0ba1e79f-6fe8-4c93-ad65-9c1c778ce4ff ro   quiet splash vt.handoff=7 acpi=off
    initrd    /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic

Only problem now is that you have to close the PC by pressing the power off button after you shutdown in linux mint 11.

better pass the parameter irqpoll to the kernel
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
Modify next line 
sudo update-grub
