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.

    if problem persists then
    as these motherboard are specially designed for windows xp so it does
    not supports to install windows 2000... these motherboard recommends
    only windopws xp,sp2 or higher versions than that like
    windows2003,media center edition, vista ... so we cant install windows
    98 or 2000 and all ... so upgrade ur pc to win xp sp2 that s best
    These mother boards will not support windows 2000, check the below link of INTEL

    format the drive in which you previously installed that & then reinstall xp...
    before that try going to safe mode by pressing (f 8) .....then give system restore from the accessories > system tools > sytem restore ... then select the date when windows worked normally & give restore ... then it will work...

Lode needed dlls for kernel

Use the ERD disk and repair the installation. Choose to replace all files, and then replace only the Hal.dll and Ntoskrnl.exe files.

If you can start another installation of Windows NT on the same computer, you can expand the correct Hal.dll and Ntoskrnl.exe files from the Windows NT CD-ROM. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Boot to the working version of Windows NT.
  2. Start a command prompt.
  3. Change to the CD-ROM drive.
  4. Change to the appropriate folder on the CD-ROM (for example, I386 for Intel-based computers).
  5. Type expand hal.dl_ <systemroot>\system32 where <systemroot> is the path of the non-functioning Windows NT folder.
  6. Type expand ntoskrnl.ex_ <systemroot>\system32.
  7. Restart the computer into the other Windows NT installation.

H D Audio Driver fails to install

Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.

ACPI Multiprocessor PC is trying to install on my friend's computer. It started ocurring after she did system recover. It looks like she now has two hard drives -- one fat32 (?) and the regular drive c. At...

YES, do let it install !

ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface

This is a firmware interface in BIOS, that allows operating systems to call BIOS routines for managing power related
system hardware parameters:

1) CPU mode (Sn states): Run, Suspend, Sleep, hibernate ...

2) CPU Voltage and frequency

3) Fan speed... etc....


Multi-processor PC, means that the firmware has detected a
multi processor system or is confused by the hardware. There
are several conditions that cause this interpretation:

a) A genuine multi-CPU Board with 2 or 4 CPU sockets.

b) A multi-core, single CPU, such as the new Intel
CORE-2 DUO series...

c) Interleaved RAM on a single CPU, with dual buses.

This is OK, and nothing to worry about.


The ACPI interface is very advanced and complex, about 3500
pages of engineering specifications, and most P'sC only use
a very tiny sub-set of its capability.

The ground level ACPI settings and options are contained within
the system BIOS. The best solution is to set them to their
default settings, unless you know what all the settings mean.

To access the BIOS settings, on most PC's:
Press DEL or F1 right after the POST/memory test.

Depending on the BIOS settings, the operating system's HAL
(Hardware Abstraction Layer) may need to install additional
interface and control drivers.

On a desktop, these so called "GREEN" power saving features
are a horrible pain in the neck. and I would disable them all
together, unless you pay $20,000 per months for your

On a laptop, however, these drivers are fairly important to
significantly extend your battery life, so you should enable

If the computer was restored to factory condition, by pressing
a magic "blue" button, these drivers are part of the original factory installation and should be installed, just let the PC recursively do its thing, until it calms down.


Most name brand manufactures provide a hidden partition on
the hard driver, typically a FAT-32, which contains a complete
set of recovery files, unique to the PC model and all the features
it supports.

This restore partition is most often formatted as FAT-32,
because FAT can be accessed using primitive BIOS calls
while NTFS cannot:

1) FAT16 = Original DOS, support drives < 2GB only.

2) FAT32 = Extended FAT-16, for larger drives.

3) NTFS = Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Vista only.
Cannot be accessed before Windows is running.

The manufacturer then provides a boot/ BIOS hook,
activated by their MAGIC or BLUE button, which in turn
un-hides this restore partition, loads Windows PE
(a special pre-install/ repair version of windows),
and then loads the recovery program.


In any event, you need to let the installation/ restore process
finish, including the ACPI install.

After several annoying re-boot cycles, this process will (should)
restore the PC to original factory conditions.

Factory restoration is, however, a very drastic and destructive process. All your settings are lost and (depending on the particular system) sometimes your data as well. I should
be avoided like a biker on a bad day.

It is a good idea to back-up everything possible, before taking such a drastic step, and I prefer to use an external USB drive for doing this. Also this step should only be used as a last resort.


However, in your case, all the DRASTIC and LOSSY part has
happened already, so you have no choice but to proceed and
let it finish. Once the restoration is complete, the FAT-32
partition should disappear, that is it will be hidden again.

Do not damage this partitions, unless you own a set of factory
repair CD's !!!

It is also a good idea to request the FACTORY repair CD's for
your machine from the manufacturer and keep them in a safe

Once you have the recovery CD's, you can delete the hidden
recovery partition, and use the recovered space for more
useful things, such as data or applications.

To do this, you need a partition manager tool, such a Norton's
Partition Magic or Acronis tools. Norton's bought the original
tool from Power Quest, and royally phluquified it, so I much
prefer Acronis these days.


Also after you PC is fully restored, go into the power settings
in the control panel (or via the screen saver settings) and
configure the ACPI as you wish. But you must install it first.

Hope this answers all your questions,
please rate my answers.

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.

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."
