Windows 7: BIOS not ACPI compatible BSOD on clean install of Windows 7?

BIOS not ACPI compatible BSOD on clean install of Windows 7?

I'm trying to install Windows 7 on a Compaq Presario 2100 laptop with 1GB of RAM and known good HDD. I ran memtest 86 for 12 hours with no errors. The BIOS sucks and has no options for ACPI, power management, or even serial/parallel port addressing, only boot order, system info, and password. The only device option in the BIOS besides video memory (tried every setting there) is legacy usb support (tried that too). I've been googling for 2 hours about this and found the whole F5 and F7 thing for XP, but I'm not sure if there's a similar option in 7 to only use Standard HAL. There's no Press F6 prompt in 7 install to press F7 at.

We have a 2150 which came back to life several years after coffee saturated the keyboard. It lives on with XP but is the only one of our older machines that will not run Windows 7 even with the 2005 BIOS update.

These are survivor workhorses but not Windows 7 capable that I've found.
