Hi!
I was gonna install Windows 8 Developer Preview (public) x64 but it crashes with a ACPI_BIOS_ERROR BSOD. The pc works fine with windows 7.
Can anyone help me fix this?
PC: Lenovo y700-17isk
Thanks

The computer's BIOS is not compatible, which is quite odd for such a recent computer. Does this happen with other builds as well?

Happens to me too, and my laptop is from late 2017 (HP Notebook 15 bs101nv). Only a problem with the specific build. Windows Vista up until Windows 8 7989-ish and Consumer Preview 8250 - Windows 10 work just fine. Same problem whether it is x64 or x86, UEFI and BIOS(CSM) mode.

Can't really do any testing these days due to a tight as hell finals schedule, so I'm just here to point out my observations... After June 6th we'll see tho.

Windows 1 DR5 to 10 build 9901
And I guess it still persists when upgrading from an older RTM version of Windows like Windows 7, so that would be useless to do.

Yep, what would be useless to do?

Try taking ACPI.SYS from a newer build.

Where to put ACPI.sys? It’s not even booting to the installer. Please don’t tell me that I need to modify boot.wim

Or you can replace boot.wim with a newer one that works.

You'll still need to copy acpi.sys from c:\windows\system32\drivers from a build that works.

And if that works, replace ACPI.sys in install.wim?

Try replacing acpiec.sys if that exists.

Also, please fix your image. Tapatalk doesn't work with images well (doesn't realize the forum's dimension limitation), use the actual site's uploader.

I did replace it. Will fix image soon, not now as my internet driver is picky.
