When i m trying to Boot a Laptop using EEtech i m getting an Blue Screen with following Error Message "The bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."
I m facing this issue only on Dell Vostro 3460 & 3450.
Please try to help me.......
Thanks in Advance.
I just did a quick search for the first part of that message, and there appear to be quite a few results. Unfortunately, it looks like a general compatibility issue between WinPE/Windows and your hardware. It's not actually related to EEPC.
I guess a start would be to apply the latest BIOS updates from the Dell website.
I have reffered the McAfee Article to create EETech and followed all the steps to create EETech, But i can see any point mentioning to add drivers.
And regarding to BIOS, it is already updated with latest version.
So please help me to create the EETech with correct Drivers and specific hardware.
Thanks in Advance.

Are you using WinPE with WinTech? Or the standalone EETech?
If it's the former, then you would need to establish what drivers are required for your hardware, and that's not something I'm familiar with (sorry)... you need to make the WinPE image compatible with your laptop ; it's not an EEPC problem, but a WinPE problem.
If it's the latter, then something else is amiss here, and the following questions apply: how far do you get with EETech?
What version of WinPE are you using? If not 3.1, try with 3.1.
Have you installed storage drivers for the Vostro into your image from here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/uk/en/ukdhs1/Product/vostro-3460
Good you're on 3.1.
Can I just clarify that it is a Windows PE image, and not an EETech/McAfee/EEPC image......we supply an application (EETech) and some drivers that run within the WinPE environment.
Please refer to this YouTube video I found for you:
Hope that this resolves your problem. If not, can I suggest that you raise a call with Dell, asking how to build a working WinPE image for this machine? Once you have a working WinPE image, you can then add in the EETech app and drivers etc. according to the EETech guide.
Hope that helps.
I am also having this issue. I found that this happens on all Dell models that doesnt have the latest drivers installed. Im using PE builder with image of Windows XP SP2 and the EETECH file download from McAfee website. Will give you guys feedback as soon as its been successful.
