Atk0110 driver is probably not installed correctly hence the unknown. Asus ahs a driver for download at ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Forum- ATK0110 ACPI Utility Drivers . Let us know if that doesnt help

Do you have an acpi setting in BIOS? could you see if it exists and uncheck if checked or check if not.

I know this is probably not what you want to hear, but I would start completely over. D/L a new copy, reburn at the slowest speed and see if that doesnt help. IMHO everything you're working with is compromised and suspect....

i would gladly do it, but that won't solve the problem.
the cd is ok, installed from another installation i made on my DOK
it was the same, got nothing to do with the disc.

yes i have ACPI feature on the board.
i can change it to ACPI V1.0, 2.0 or 3.0 tried all the three and it was the same.
also have ACPI APIC ENABLED.
