I have to use this kernel command line parameters to get the livecd to boot without any issues:

apm=off acpi=off mce=off barrier=off ide=nodma idewait=50 i8042.nomux psmouse.proto=bare irqpoll pci=nommconf aic7xxx=no_probe

Those are EXTREMELY safe parameters. You might wish to alter them after more testing.

Here you have the LSPCI output:
