I'm not an expert by any stretch, but seeing a lack 0of other responses
I'll pipe in and maybe I can help:

The problem probably has to do with the initial ACPI error you're
getting.  The ACPI tables are parsed for the CPU information and if
there's an error in that stage then the hypervisor can't detect the
number of CPUs (or cores) in the system and so it disables SMP support
and you can only use a single CPU.

Workarounds to try are:

If neither of the above work, try this (appears to be an undocumanted
option I found with a bit of googling):

Any of the above options should be specified on the hypervisor command
line in grub.

Hope this helps.
