Hey guys, just figured I'd post this here in hopes someone had some advice.

CPU: E5-2670
MOBO: Tyan S7050

ERROR: Hard to see, as I can't get it to NOT restart, but the BSOD looks like ACPI_BIOS_ERORR.

Tried resetting CMOS, BIOS options to default, did a memory test and it came back clean.

Try booting a live cd, perhaps you'll glean some more information on the cause. I have also seen similar issues when the install media is dodgy :)

Bios update fixed it!

Now to get IMPI working. Looks like I'll have issues since I'm using an add in video card.
