I think that this can be bypassed on a per boot basis (press F7) on the boot where it asks you to press f8 if there is any problems. (before win2k flash screen)

you can get round this by updating your motherboard's BIOS

To upgrade your bios you need to follow the online instructions carefully.  (mis flashing your BIOS  can stop your board from loading at all)


To upgrade to the latest bios  you first need to upgrade to ver 1788 (you cannot go direct to the latest version.. if your current BIOS Version is already 1788 you can skip this

please read and follow the instructions on this page*+2000&lang=eng
one this is completed you can upgrade to the latest version here*+2000&lang=eng

    if you can use the f7 method to enter Windows you can use the Express BIOS option (as it is the easiest)

You will need to go to the website for the motherboard manufacturer and download the updated drivers for that motherboard. This is common with all the changes that windows goes through in a life cycle.

i think this is a p3 system or first generation pentium 4 ... ACPI is an advanced powermangment feature .which helps stand by , hibernate , etc..... and it also power the computer off when clicking shut down in windows ..... a bios update of the corresponding mother baord will do the thing ..
so that u need a fresh floppy disk and a working drive .. do it carefully . as negligence will cause the mobo to be useless

The BIOS in the system is not fully ACPI compliant. I want to updated BIOS. How can I do?

Hi meangmoeurn, what makes you think your bios is not ACPI complaint?
Enter your bios & disable ACPI. The reason for this is windows must be fully updated. One windows has been fully updated you can turn on ACPI. Its a software issue.
Read through this Microsoft link;

Update for ACPI, (Windows update);
The above update should be included with other updates. This is why I suggested the above.
If you still feel you need to update your bios,
(Flash Utility software). I'll need the motherboard model number & manufacture's name.

Good luck meangmoeurn!
Feel free to correct me on this issue.
Thank you for using fixya.

Problem istalling windows 2000 professional on a pc with intel d945gcnl motherboard

try to make bios settings default and make a proper installation

The bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."
