ERST: Failed to get Error Log Address Range

Question
I noticed X8 DP series motherboard showing “ERST: Failed to get Error Log Address Range” message during the RHEL/CentOS 6.2,6.3 version while booting. What is this problem related to?
Answer
For “ERST: Failed to get Error Log Address Range” this type of event message, you can do one of following items to get workaround. 
1. Disable ACPI with command “acpi=off” in boot grub 
2. Disable WHEA option from enable to disable in BIOS setup menu 
The reason is WHEA requesting ACPI 4.0 table support. Recently, X8 DP series do not support ACPI 4.0 feature (only ACPI 3.0). This is why you will see this warming message shown up during OS boot.
