I get that ACPICA_InitTask and some address as an Illegal instruction as an error every time I attempt to boot on CD. Any help?

Hi,

Try disabling ACPI via grub command line. I believe it is described in ICaros manual how to do this - it's quite simple.

It's not mentioned in the manual.

I tried finding a way on the internet but all solutions seem to favor already installed OSes and not Live ones.

From my memory:

On grub screen press E, this will move to edit mode.
Add at the end of kernel command line "noacpi noapic"
Press CTRL-x to boot

Possibly other can add more details.

I booted grub from cd

selected the icarus option by pressing "e"

tried both noapci and noacpi; they where not considered as understood commands

Worked!

Turns out, I should add ATA=noacpi at the line where ATA=32bit was present

I still have another issue, my HDD is invisible and Icarus refuses to continue installation.

usually you write ata=nodma and when you press "E" in the main screen(GRUB) about the acpi subsystem you remove all the entries that concern them
