I have inherited a Packard Bell tower iMedia MC 1607, UTOW-SAN, SAN984517. 3.1 Ghz, 2Gb RAM. I can't see it on the PB support site.It has 64bit capacity in the BIOS options(set to on) BUT it came with WinXP 32 bit OS, so I tried to upgrade to Win 7 32bit with a freshly formatted/partitioned hdd. It seemed to install ok from a Rufus created Flash drive and was working fine. When I restarted the next time I get a error, Win couldn;t start. When I choose startup repair, or start normally, either way I get a BSOD msg: not ACPI compliant, need BIOS update.
OK, I can flash a BIOS, but where is it? Not even listed on the PG Support UK site! Or is this something GRUB Repair disc or MBR Repair could fix? Is this box 32 or 64 bit?
Anybody have some advice?
