    • I have an old (Award Bios is April 12, 2001, floppy drive, CD/DVD drive, 320 GB IDE HDD, 1.5 GB RAM) non-ACPI-compliant desktop running XP Pro. I desperately (;)) want to install win 7 on this machine that I use only for testing, and messing around on...:rolleyes:
    • Any suggestions how I can make this happen and get past this non-ACPI-compliant thing? I can't find a Bios update since they've stopped making them....o_O
    Any help / suggestions would be appreciated.
