Q: Trouble installing Windows 8.1 - ACPI BIOS ERROR

Hi. I've just tried to install the new windows 8.1 on my Samsung series 5 laptop. Everything when fine, until it was supposed to restart. The Samsung logo pops up, then the classic windows logo, and then.. a blue screen pops up, telling me that there's a problem, and it tells me to search "ACPI BIOS ERROR" on the internett. The program tries to restart over and over and over again. Still hasn't been able to get on the laptop. Can anyone please help me?

Well the threads you mentioned doesn't really help. It's basically saying to go back to windows 8. There is no way that I can fix my current situation to boot into windows 8.1?

Hi Gilberto,

ACPI is the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface.
You would need to clear the CMOS (loading optimized BIOS defaults). BIOS would need updating. As you are not able to enter the BIOS.  You need to first contact the manufacturer(Samsung) of your system to get help on entering the BIOS.

Hi...the disk might be the GPT mode try to convert the Basic disk....or the other option is to update the bios if possible.

After long, long hours dealing with this problem, I finally have a solution! It's all about BIOS! If you have updated BIOS prior to updating Windows, no problem. If you didn't, here is a solution.

1. Remove HDD

2. Insert another HDD with functional Windows.

3. Update BIOS

4. install original HDD

Windows upgrade will continue, and in about 30' everything is back to normal.

Good luck
