ACPI.SYS/Nonspecific Stop Error When Installing XP ???

I have a new Pavillion dv7-3060us with Win 7 and would like to install XP Pro dual-boot.
I have tried using nLite to slipstream the appropriate AMD SATA drivers including the F5
option, etc. but continue to get a blue screen stop error(ACPI.SYS or nonspecific). When I select the F5 option, the only choices I get are
1. Standard PC with C-Step i486
2. Other
This happens both with XP Pro and XP MCE SP2 install attempts.
Help!!!!

Re: ACPI.SYS/Nonspecific Stop Error When Installing XP ???

Finally Tfisher has managed to get XP installed and all drivers are working_only now his Atheros will not connect. He is using the Atheros driver from Part 3 of the XP Downgrade Guide (sp39403),which shows installed & working.Wireless Assistant however refuses to run which is usually an indication of something not right with the adapter and/or driver.

 

Any suggestions Rakhmad or Daniel?

 

Btw, the SATA driver he finally used with success is Here ,which is from latest ATI which I think is at 9.12 now.

And for the SM Bus which is missing in the screenshots you emailed to me, the Southbridge driver in the XP Downgrade Guide should be the correct one.If not post your hd ids.

 

Download South Bridge Driver individually, Here

 

 With this plus the new Atheros psoted above by Rakhmad..hopefully you will be set!

Re: ACPI.SYS/Nonspecific Stop Error When Installing XP ???

I noticed on your other thread that Marcelo has tried the sp46630 posted above_with no luck.

 

Try Atheros v7.7.0.259 here:

Just extract the driver somewhere and use the update driver method to install.

Re: ACPI.SYS/Nonspecific Stop Error When Installing XP ???

acpi.sys refrain XP setup

I have the same problem : I am running a Pavilion dv7series x 64 bits with 4 BG and 500 GB SATA hard drive (ST 9500420 AS SATA ).
I did a new partition of 30GB with Paragon Partition Manager intending to install Windows XP operating System 32 bits into it.
I strictly followed the instruction from Paragon for do the partition and install a new O.S.
Everything goes OK until reach around the middle of the setup that the computer stops showing this statement:

STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF73B8D66, DXF78D1EA0, 0XF78D1B9C)
Acpi.sys ─ Address F73B8D66 base at F73Ad000 dataestamp 41107d27


If a drive is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver update.
All the items in Device Manager are upgraded. Also the BIOS is upgraded
I checked into Device Manager and Task Manager for acpi.sys to disable it, but not disable button is there.
I open Windows ─ System32 – Drivers, I tried to rename acpi.sys and a box said: Access Denied.
I persisted on installing the XP operating system pressing F6 – F7 just before starting the setup and got the following information:

Remove any newly installed hard drive or hard drive controller. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x0000000


I played around in the Bios to change the hard drive to IDE/SATA but Windows 7 does not have an option as Vista has.
help me please !!

Re: ACPI.SYS/Nonspecific Stop Error When Installing XP ???

if you still have the recoverry partition (which i urge you to keep) and the hptools partition windows plus the hidden winpe partiton ... adding another partition will change the drive to a dynamic one ... the harddrive can handle 4 partitions... on basic mode.. dynamic mode screws things up..... just a thought
