    Ok, I guess that settles it: if the hardware is 100% not ACPI-compliant, then no patching to acpi.sys or anything like that will be enough for Windows Vista and 7. If a BIOS update won't do it, nothing reasonable will.

    Thank you SIW2 and everyone who provided assistance!

    from the link:

    As others have confirmed it is indeed the Speedstep being enabled that is the problem, you can disable that to install Win 7. but will be at 600MHZ CPU Speed
