@Harshavardhan: I have exactly the same issue with my HP Pavilion g4 (I got the startup error only when I restart from Ubuntu). Any solution?, I have tried almost everything and Im really disappointed of my HP

I tried upgrading my BIOS version as suggested by some members in the forum but still no use. I get the same error message whenever I reboot from ubuntu or any linux distro as a matter of fact.
I am still searching for the solution. As before... no support from the HP people!
P.S: BIOS version is F.15

I tried with several distros, kernel upgrade, BIOS update and not luck so far
I am still looking for a solution too, without any luck.

I have one week old Pavilion g6-1155ee Notebook and I have the same problem with Linux, I think it doesn't like the way the Linux kernel halts...
I have latest BIOS installed (F.15), I just hope HP will fix this problem since it's really annoying...

I have the same exact problem on my g4.
I went to the HP Customer Care center of my city, and the Manager of the Client support told me on the matter : "This is not our responsability, please check with Linux"
The only solution I found is to install Linux on a Virtualbox !!!

If u put in the recovery disk and continue to the command prompt then you can enter Bootrec.exe \FixMbr then restart and grub will be gone as well as the error.....
I hope this helps some of you

As said by 3DMan, upgrading the bios version to F.32 solves the problems of System Temperature which we at the startup when we reboot from linux, Sleep in windows, it also solved the problem of suspend in ubuntu which was bugging me for a long time for my g4 noteboook. So, whoever is suffering from these problems, I suggest them to upgrade their BIOS to f.32 which is the latest one.
It seems this latest bios version is the stable version in which there really is some improvement. Atlast HP people took the System Temperature error seriously and solved it in this release of BIOS.
Hope this helps!
