Fresh install with no ACPI
Just press F5 after the first screen asking
if you have raid devices to install (will ask at
bottom of screen to press F6) keep pressing F5 to second screen where it will ask to press F2 for recovery console. Keep holding F5 and should get another screen where it will say that it cannot recognize type of pc. There you have two choices: standard pc and other. Select standard and voila no ACPI will be installed.

    I don't see why you shouldn't install ACPI. I tried it out and it worked, but still, what is the reason?

    BAD IDEA. There is no explanation of why anyone should do this. No wonder, with rare exceptions there is no good reason to do this. ACPI is a good thing, leave it alone. Larry Miller, Microsoft MCSA

    For the 2 of you above, who have no clue, there are actually system boards out there that are not fully ACPI compliant, even though they were designed around the specification. Those system boards are still capable of running XP. However, if XP is installed as ACPI HAL, those systems may crash, lock-up frequently, or cause data loss. As such, you have the option to install XP as a Standard PC HAL and they will operate fine.
