Windows 7: fatal error unable able to locate necessary tables HP dc5000 SFF

fatal error unable able to locate necessary tables HP dc5000 SFF


I decided to install Windows7 Home Premium on my HP dc5000 SFF. it installed fine but every time it reboots, I get an error that says...

"FATAL ERROR: Failed to locate necessary table(s) to make adjustments. Press any key to continue booting"

This only happens when using the "restart" mode. if I use "shut down" and let the computer turn completely off, it will start with no errors!

I've never seen anything like this and not able to find anything on Google or other boards

Does anyone have any suggestions

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Failed to locate necessary tables

Just for anyone who may face this problem.
I ran into it after a fresh installation of W7.
It only appeared after a programmed restart.
Not if you switched off and than back on.

The Pc was 100% Ok, as another drive with W7 proofed.

The problem was clearly the Windows 7. version
Tried another W7 install CD and it worked all right.
So in this case it was a software issue.

But there are other possibilities to on the internet.
