it says probably caused by ACPI.sys
did you install some new device or driver in your system?
try to run command from command prompt sfc /detect now
or
try to boot with F8 and choose last good known configuration

every time you boot it goes to BSOB before you load desktop?
if so check your BIOS settings for SATA mode (IDE, AHCI, Compatible)

Try F8 and then look at devices that power off if not used like NIC cards etc.

Also check bios to make sure the new drive is setup correctly

I have no way to run the hotfix listed as I can only get into safe mode and safe mode will not allow me to run it.

Can you run the computer off just the power supply and remove the battery?

Also are you running any symantec software on this computer?


Run sigverif and make sure drivers have proper signatures.

Reseat memory if possible
