Default Successfully booting NetBSD Live on a Sony Vaio PCG-GRZ530 with limited results

I've managed to get the GUI to start and it hangs during services.

What options do I need to pass to the kernel and boot parameters for the system to be successful?

Also, is there documentation available for installing on to a vaio?

Problems are with apic, lapic, possible apm.

Successful boot with Linux distributions after noapic, nolapic and acpi are passed at boot.

Laptop will run for 1 1/2 days before showing increased temperatures.
I've taken the thing apart and cleaned the fan and vent.
