BIOS error: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.

HP ProBook 640 G1 Notebook PC

My hard disk became corrupt in my HP ProBook, so I replaced this with a new disk and attempted to install a clean version of both Windows XP and Windows 7 on to this disk.

Both installs gave the 'The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant' message when atempting lo load up windows. I don't have any HP specific recovery or installation disks or anything for this Notebook,can't remember ever having anything like that

 

 

I then reset the BIOS to factory settings, just in case something had been changed for my old setup that a new install didn't like, but it made no difference.

 

I have also tried installing both 32 and 64 bit versions of windows, all to no avail.

But I can load Linux distros on this machine no problem, and they appear to work fine.

 

Is this just a BIOS setup issue, is it just a setting that windows dfosn't like?

Or is there something more serioous wrong with this machine, apart from the hard disk corupting?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.
