PXE Booting Optiplex 7060, after KBE selection receiving Error: Bios not fully ACPI compliant

Hardware involved: Kace k2000 version: 6.0.425. Dell OptiPlex 7060 SFF, 8th gen I7-8700, 32gb ram, m.2 256 SSDR class 20

Just got new systems in (OptiPlex 7060's) and I am working on creating a new Windows 10 x64 system image with little success.

I did a clean install on the device of Windows 10 Ent VLC

Updated all drivers, BIOS, and installed all windows updates. It is now running Windows 10 version 1803.

Downloaded and installed the Windows 10 PE driver packs in the \drivers\kbe_windows_x64 (backed up and cleared out the folder first)

I have added the Opti 7060 x64 in the driver feed

 Re cached the drivers

Installed the ADK for Windows 10

Uploaded the Windows Media to the k2000 (windows 10 x64 vlc ISO)

Installed and used the KBE Manipulator to create the KBE as the SDA Media Manager does not work for creating the KBE.

Adjusted the Bios on the machine with the settings adjustments:

Enabled UEFI Network Stack, Enabled w/PXE,

Disabled secure boot

fastboot thorough

updated BIOS to most current available for machine. Tested with original bios and updated bios, same result.

When I PXE boot to the Integrated nic, I get to the select KBE screen, I select the newly created KBE and it begins to process.

Shortly after I receive a blue screen of death that states "The bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated BIOS." Stop: 0x000000A5

Went back and tried clearing out the drivers\kbe_windows_64 folder, taking the drivers from the  \\kbox\drivers_postinstall\dell\windows_10_x64\7060\network and \storage folder and dropping them in the drivers\kbe_windows_64 folder to create a custom KBE just for the 7060 like I previously have done for the 7050's. Re-cached the drivers, created a new KBE, and received the same results.

At one point (during my multiple KBE built attempts) when I would select the UEFI boot onboard IPv4 nic during boot up, I would receive a iastoreB.sys file error which is what lead me to believe it was a drive file issue.

I have checked the power settings in the BIOS and could not find anything related to "what happens when the power button is pressed." or anything I think would cause the ACPI error.

Any thoughts or suggestion on resolving this issue? Anyone else run into this error and have a work around?

 I am trying to simply create my base pre sysprep "golden image" so I can move on to creating my answer file, syspreping and creating my more detailed system image.

I have been referencing the Windows 10 imaging guide and searching through but am not having any luck.

  • Hi

    Avoid using Physical devices to build golden images, Always always use VMs. (Hyper-V, VM Ware, VirtualBox, etc etc).

    That is an issue trying to load Windows PE... so it is either a machine related issue, or (and I know it sounds crazy), a hardware issue.

    Make sure your KBE wasn't built with ADK 1809, as is not currently working for imaging:


    Is this happening to all of your 7060s?

    Maybe DELL guys will know How to solve this. - Channeler 2 years ago
  • Hello, I have a machine like yours but with another problem. When I install script, the boot system is not recognized after installation.
    Could you share how you created the command in tasks?
    Thank you - madro 2 years ago

After battling with using physical machines for golden images, and getting some sort of an error every time I tried ( Windows 10 specifically) I ended up going to Hyper-V. It makes life a lot easier, allows you to take snapshots of each step, so you are able to go back and change things, and can all be done from the comfort of your regular computer. I would definitely recommend setting it up and creating VM images.
