Question about EPoX EP-8RDA3I Pro Motherboard
I have a Epox EP-8rda3i Pro Socket A motherboard, was trying to install WinXP Pro from CD, keep getting error message: acpi error, I removed all my pci cards and only installed my ati video card. Still getting acpi error, can anyone help? Thanks Rob C.
Hey there rcrozier, your solution is to disable ACPI in the BIOS. To do so, follow these steps. 1/ When set up is loading, a blue screen will appear asking if you have RAID devices, indicating pressing F6. Instead press and hold F7. This should prevent ACPI from installing. Alternately at the blue screen mentioned above, press F5 and hold. It should advance eventually to a new screen prompting you to press F2. Keep holding F5. It will give you another screen telling you it cannot recognize your pc type. It gives you two choices: standard pc or other. Choose standard pc. resulting in ACPI not being installed. Unfortunately the other result of this ACPI not being installed is that your power management will be reduced. Overclocking is not advised. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
