BIOS Flash problem - Failure to load ACPI
Posted on 2007-10-03
I recently updated the BIOS on the Abit AB9 Pro board using the Windows utility from ABIT, however, after the BIOS updated successfully, I noticed that the computer started to hang. I then decided to re-flash the Bios with the backed up BIN file. The problem I have now is that the computer hung while the BIOS was updating (at 60%), and I had no option but to restart. On restarting Windows Vista will not work and it goes into the 'Windows Boot Manager' screen with the following error:
Info: Windows failed to load because the ACPI firmware (BIOS) RSDP table is invalid.
It seems that this problem is caused because the BIOS did not complete loading.
I do not have a floppy drive on the computer. Would really appreciate aome help in getting this resolved and the computer working again (by the way, I am unable to enter the BIOS when I select the Delete button on POST).
