    Sorry for asking such a stupid question but how do I exclude it in make xconfig?

    Or am I missing the blindingly obvious???

    It is not easy to find. It is under Device Drivers => Serial ATA... =>
    ATA SFF Support => Silicon Image SATA Support

    Are you sure you really want to exclude ACPI? A lot of stuff will
    break, or do you need to set acpi=off in order to boot?

    Been advised by the manufacturer that acpi should be turned off in the BIOS in order to receive interrupts from a pci bridge device.

    If I do this and set acpi=off is this equivalent to building without acpi support?

    Many thanks for your help

    Yes and no.

    - Yes, it will switch off ACPI

    - No, because if needed later, you can easily switch back without having to rebuild the kernel

    P.S.
