Trying to load Windows XP on to a Toshiba Satellite 4100.. I am getting a blue screen saying "bios not fully ACPI compliant".. what meaneth thisseth...and how do I get round it???. The blue screen also mutters something about pressing F7 during text page... not a scooby as to what that is either. Any advice greatly appreciated.
