Windows 7: alienware 17 R2 BIOS not fully ACPI Compliant after A08 installed

alienware 17 R2 BIOS not fully ACPI Compliant after A08 installed

Updating your Alienware to Bios level A08 from A06 will result in your Windows 7 system booting to a BSOD. Nothing you can do will repair this except reloading A06 again. If your Alienware has M2 SSD with Windows 10 loaded, you can use this system to downgrade to A06. Then Windows 7 is happy again. You could also replace the hard drive with one that has Windows 10 on it and do the same thing. Either will work. But until you do, forget about Windows 7 working.

I believe the consensus is for Dell to leave behind Windows 7. This is a good way for them to do it. It's bad business if you ask me.

Yea, lets all upgrade our Bios and get screwed.
