Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. If you have received this error message durinf installation, it means that bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. ACPI driver is part of the operating system. The ACPI driver's responsibilities include support for PnP and power management. You need to obtain the latest update of the BIOS firmware supplied by the manufacturer. 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. This is the time where you see "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver". The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation.
All the best!
