Specs: Windows 2000, Pentium 2
Hello, i have a Compaq Armada 1700. This computer is from 1997 or 1996, so it doesn't support ACPI. I just want to make sure, to disable ACPI, when i install Windows 2000, when it says "Press F6 to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver", i should press F7 and this just disables ACPI so when i turn my computer off it says "It's now safe to turn off your computer". So i should just press F7? I just want to make this sure. So i don't start up my computer, and when 2000 boots, i just get a BSoD that says i should press F7 during the text-based part of setup or something.

Thanks for any answer.

Boot into the BIOS (setup) screens and look at the options there. May be an option to enable/disable PNP aware OS. Or something along the lines of letting the BIOS control the resources.

I don't know about using any F key to enable or disable ACPI.

Have a look at the available downloads for your laptop when running Win2000. Click on the link below: Go Drivers> Armada 1700 then select your exact model.

I'm gonna try both F5 and F7. Iv'e read that if your motherboard doesn't support ACPI, then you can just disable during Windows setup. Thank you for your answer.
