Re: problem installing windows 2000 prof. on intel...

Do you have the correct version of Windows for INTEL based x86 processors?
Either that or you may need to update your BIOS software for that.

When I format the hdd and installing win xp sp2 Blue screen keeping reporting tha the bios is not fully acpi compatible and I'm unable since to get it done

im sorry there is no one answer to this problem a couple of possible solutions are to 1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
2. When Setup starts again, press F7 when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant.

you could have a bad stick or sticks of ram

or you need to flash/update you bios

or you need to clear the cmos [removal of battery or a jumper switch depending on your mobo]

once again im sorry to not have a clear one size fits all solution to this problem i hope this helps you and please vote for me

The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant

Thanks for the information :)
You dont say what system, or what problems you are getting.
If you are running windows 2000, then it is probably a very old system, so you may have problems using some of the functions.
There is some information from microsoft here

Where to download drivers to update the BIOS for my IBM desk-top

Ha! Old OS, old URL; possibly just an old desktop not up to the task of running WinXP.
It's a new BIOS you'd flash your system with, and probably a push between your motherboard's BIOS having an update (you'd go to the mobo's maker's site, e.g. that of ASUS, Gigabyte, Intel, etc.; read the screen-print on the board; to get the update) and telling WinXP to install anyhow using a handy force-install option.

Bios in my other computer is not fully acpi compliant (blue screen)what can i do ?

This error is typically related to the OS attempting to access the hard drive during install or startup.

So, it sounds like you've got some hardware like a RAID controller that is causing the problems. If you're attempting to install to a single hard drive, disable the RAID controller. If you've just installed some type of hardware, try removing it.

If you don't have a RAID controller, update your Bios from the manufacturer and see how that works for you

Asking solution

PROBLEM: During Windows installation the system displays a blue error screen reporting that the BIOS is not suitable for use with ACPI.

Solution :

If your system reports this error then reboot it and wait for the prompt about pressing F6 (to use other mass storage devices). At this point press F7 (not F6) so that setup will install APM power management in place of ACPI power management. Installation should then continue to completion successfully.

I hope this should resolve the issue for you.

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."
