The easy and safe way to disable ACPI from the device manager in XP. Just right click on it in the device manager, choose update driver, click I will choose the driver to install, and click on Standard PC. Reboot the PC and it will redetect all your devices.
A easy way to do the Fresh Install with no ACPI. When setup is loading, the blue screen will ask if you have any raid devices, and to press F6. When it does that, press and hold F7, & ACPI will not be installed.
The third way Just press F5 after the first screen asking if you have raid devices to install (will ask at bottom of screen to press F6) keep pressing F5 to the second screen where it will ask to press F2 for recovery console. Keep holding F5 and should get another screen where it will say that it cannot recognize type of pc. There you have two choices: standard pc and other. Select standard and voila no ACPI will be installed.
This should solve your ACPI issues and your devices will be assigned their own IRQ, disabing ACPI in WinXP affects power management etc...but it looks like you have no choice.
i hope good...

Tips for a great answer:
When you first start the XP install, you are in 'text' mode - you know, blue and white screen, no graphics.
When you get to the point where it says at the bottom "Press F6 to install additional storage drivers", just hit F7. Change your system type from ACPI compliant to Standard Computer in the menu that comes up.
Is this message received on an existing installation OR are you now trying to install XP - that "during text mode set up" refers to the install.
If it is already installed Press F8 and select Safe Mode.
If you get in XP there go Start, right click My Computer, click properties, click the hardware tab, click device manager and on the My Computer expand the + sign.
If it says ACPI there, then it already is ACPI compliant.
This actually stands for "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface"
The issue is more than likely a driver, memory or possibly a flat CMOS battery.
hope this helps
