Hi, I am getting ACPI Bios BoS (Error 0x000000A5 ), During Windows Setup (XP,Win8), While one Win7 (32bit/64bit) it just restart back Leonovo Boot Screen while try to Load the Setup GUI.

Try Every  possible Bios Setting but nothing work,, System can pass the memory test for 2 hours with no error, My first Lenovo purchase and a very fustrated one

Hello wuchiren,

This error can occure when your BIOS is not completely compliant with the ACPI. Here is one bypass that could help. Restart your computer and press F7. You should get this message: Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver screen. Do it and see if it helps. It should disable ACPI and install Standard HAL.

If my suggestion did not work then flash your BIOS to the newest possible version and you should be fine.

Re: H500s Can't Install Any Operating System

I'm having the same problem with a brand new machine. I thought it was a hardware problem so I figured I'd try the latest Linux Ultimate Boot CD, start with a memtest and go from there. Even that CD boots but crashes immediately. 

 

Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: H500s Can't Install Any Operating System

I had ordered a Lenovo H500s (dos) on Amazon.es. Today it arrived. But As above I can't install Windows 7 32/64 on it. I got the same error as above. It is not possible to get any support from Lenovo. So I think I will send it back.

Or has someone already a solution for this problem?
