All platform flags?

What are all the platform flags, and what do they do?


I know about the existence of x86pc and ACPI...


But now I read that you can do both at the same time? (platform=ACPI|x86pc) What does this accomplish?


And what platform is being loaded when I don't use a platform flag at all? It's apparently neither ACPI nor x86pc since it behaves differently from both of those on my machine.


Mostly just curious. Thanks in advance.

would both do the same thing?


also i see some people say you should type it like:
