ACPI Install Errors & The Vista Upgrade Advisor

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Vista Upgrade Advisor, Oct 29, 2006.

  1. Hi Microsoft,
    i have used the upgrade advisor to see if my notebook is upgradeable to
    Windows Vista, each time i have run the program it says i can [Basic
    Edition]. However, this is not the case, i have repeatedly tried to install
    RC2 without sucess. it gets so far and then stops, saying error ACPI not
    fully compliant. i strongly suggest that you add this check to the upgrade
    advisor, or when vista is finally released you may find that you have wrongly
    advised people that they can upgrade when in fact they can't. if i had waited
    for the retail version i would be stuck with £100 worth of software that
    would be useless to me and non refundable,

    Andrew
