Description Jose Soares Junior 2016-11-04 00:46:14 UTC
During boot time KERNEL complains about BIOS "version not recognized".
The only issue I notice is that my laptop freezes if I try to put it in "hibernate" mode.

From dmidecode output:

Not sure if it's related.

I guess you mean Hibernation works well in 4.5 and 4.6 kernel, right?
does the BIOS message still exist in these two kernels?

what's the earliest kernel that hibernation fails?
