Today I decided to install Windows 8 8056 and dual boot it with my Main OS on my laptop.
But every time I boot the USB, it gives me a black screen with the BSOD text

I downloaded this iso from the FTP, and used Rufus, and changed the BIOS date to July 27th 2011 and every time I try to install I get that screen. What should I do now?

The laptop is simply incompatible. ACPI_BIOS_ERROR (Bug check 0x000000a5) indicates there's an incompatibility with the system bios and Windows itself. Since 8056 is a pre-release build, I'd imagine your laptop is too new for Windows builds of this era, especially considering builds from this time often aren't tested on as many hardware configurations as things like beta and release candidate builds are.

Ah, how unfortunate! I thought it would work since I was able to install Windows 7 on the laptop despite the laptop being made sometime in 2017 while Windows 7 was released in like 2009. I guess since Windows 8 8056 is a pre-release build, there might be problems like this.

If only I knew where my core 2 duo Vista/XP era laptop was then I could try this beta build with real hardware
