    So the crack worked before without BSOD?
    Could it be that you have changed some bios settings in the meantime, like set it to default?
    I know that error message. We get the same at WoW6 project. Cracks are using different routines to patch different ACPI table configurations.

    NOW you've got a configuration that seems difficult to patch.
    WoW6 is 'our' softpatch, it uses a bootimage as well. We've got the possibility to integrate it into the boot process. (Installer version)

    -Have a look at your bios settings. Try to enable ACPI 2.0 support and retry the crack.

    -You may try WoW6 patch.

    My apologies, in what setting of the BIOS will find the ACPI support?

    I don't know if it's present, it's a guess. At newer bioses it is usually present. You may browse through the menu to find it. Additionally you may consult your Mainboard's manual to locate it.

    Btw: A link to your bios could be helpful. At Award bioses I'm able to have a look at the menu structure myself. (using modbin)

    Edit: What about the APIC (not ACPI) settings? Enabled?

    I had a look at the manual. The only setting that alters the Acpi table config is:
    ACPI HPET Table
    Use this item to enable or disable ACPI HPET Table. The default value is
    [Disabled]. Please set this option to [Enabled] if you plan to use this
    motherboard to submit Windows® VistaTM certification.

    Does it make the patch work now?

    You my sir are the only person in god-knows-how-many sites that actually fixed my problem. Not only that, but in a straightforward manner.
    Thanks a lot, Vista is working more than fine now.
