    Ok, this issue is solved for me, but I have another issue... random BSODs... Vista is just unstable on Ryzen, it can give you random BSODs with random codes (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, BAD_POOL_HEADER, etc), and seems that we need to contact win32 (creator of Windows Vista Extended Kernel) about this issue, but seems that he is active only on msfn.org, and I can't sign up to msfn.org because e-mail just does not arrive to me. So, @George King, could you contact win32 about this issue, and, if possible, bring him to this forum, if he is not in this forum? UPD: I found some person called @Win32, maybe he is real win32 UPD 2: No, he is not real win32

    For me email from MSFN was in spam and only appeared after 4 resends. They really need to fix their sign up system lol.

    I repeated one more time the procedure I wrote above to be sure to do not forget any step. The BSOD screen is still the same I attached in my previous post (please note: is visibile only pressing F8 at startup and selecting "do not automatically restart in case of failure", otherwise I just see for a second the classic XP boot screen).

    In SAFE mode Windows XP start, but I cannot do nothing as keyboard and mouse do not work...and network is unavailable so I cannot use Remote Desktop...



    Any hint?


    Try safe mode with networking

    Does anyone know what the ACPIex.sys driver does? It was introduced in windows 8.0 onwards.

    I wonder if that driver is why the 149C USB controller starts correctly on windows 8.0?

    I'm just speculating though.

    But 149C works on my PC just fine on XP after George King King

    I read XP2ESD thread, seems to me that this is a powerful tool to create a Windows XP install disc that is similar to Win7 installer. But I don't think that this can help me, as I don't want to install XP from scratch, I want to restore an XP image injecting drivers and patched file(s) (like ACPI.SYS) to have XP booting again on a new hardware. 

    Or I misunderstood the way to use XP2ESD? 


    Why not clean install?

    I'm experimenting with latest release of Windows XP Integral Edition: using options 1,3 and 4 (MovAX-Gen2 SATA/AHCI driver + MovAX-Gen2 USB3.X xHCI driver + ACPI Patch) I succeeded installing XP o.s. on a recent motherboard with Intel SkyLake processor. Without using all the above options together I just obtained BSOD during first part of XP installation.

    And now the question, where I need your help. Verifying the possibility to install XP on a new hardware was just my first step, my goal is to have the XP operating system 'alive and kicking' starting from a XP disk image of a working PC. Consider that I was able to restore it on a virtual machine without any trouble, but restoring this disk image on a real hardware and have XP booting again is a different job!

    As I discovered that the 3 above mentioned options was needed to have XP working on my hardware, I tried to patch the restored XP disk-image, injecting the modded ACPI.SYS file and the 2 drivers (SATA and USB3). All the modification was performed booting the PC with WinPE. I also added the needed "Kernel-Mode Driver Framework 1.11", played with regedit performing offline mods (mainly 'Services' section) taking as example INF files for the options needed. At the same time I imported the whole "Enum" portion of the registry taken from the working installation of XP IE on the same hardware, hoping that restoring it was enough to have XP booting...but I was wrong 😞

    Result: when I try to boot the patched XP I'm only able to see for few second the XP bootlogo and then the PC freeze and reboot...same situation for "Safe mode".

    I performed other minor tweaks and now I have a BSOD with error "PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA". See attachment...



    Can anybody help me? I really don't know what to do...thanks!


    Why not try XP2ESD?

    Using WinSetupfromUSB I select "Auto Detect and use F6 SATA/RAID/SCSI Driver" and get "No Driver Found", however the installer itself does in fact make it past the usual point of BSOD 000007b, I then get to a screen that has the "ENTER" to start the XP installation but then the laptop shuts off.



    The HDD LED blinks a for a little bit but thats all. The Drive is a 1TB Toshiba which is freshly formatted using diskpart to NTFS single partition. The laptop specs are

    16GB DDR3 RAM (2x8GB)

    Intel 6200u

    NVidia GTX940M

    2xUSB3.1 Gen1


    Try XP2ESD

    Hey Dietmar, hi. We on MSFN topic trying to help our moderator Dave-H install XP on  Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10.

    When Dave try to install XP Integral Edition he get BSOD. We know you have huge experience with that laptop.

    Can you, please, help Dave, cause specific Lenovo acpi.sys can not be downloaded anymore. And we don't know maybe it need special modified BIOS or else.

    Here is topic on msfn: https://msfn.org/board/topic/183198-ahci-and-acpi-for-xp-on-lenovo-netbook/

    We are already called you for help there on 6 page.

    Try default ACPI from integral

    Anybody tried this to boot XP in UEFI?




    > If you're booting Windows 7 or earlier in a VM, you will need the OVMF firmware with Seabios compiled in as the Compatibility Support Module (CSM), which isn't normally included. 

    This makes it useless as UEFI Class 3 BIOS don't have CSM support. And on UEFI Class 1-2 just use Legacy/CSM/MBR

    @Mov AX, 0xDEAD

    No driver fails (error code) or hardware fails to detect ports/hub.

    According to my tests on several platforms, this bug only exists on the AMD motherboards of ASUS and Lenovo. Specifically, the boot is frozen in the boot logo. And it only appears in the xhci master built in AMD CPU. The xhci from the chipset on the motherboard is not affected. The IOD of the amd3000 / 5000 is essentially the same as the PCH of the x570. The xhci master is 149c. I edit the device ID in the INF file and exclude it one by one. The device ID in the INF file cannot be PCI \ CC_ 0C0330, this happens even if 149c is excluded with ExcludeID.


    For me 149C controller boots but USB isn't working so i can't check anything else, and it's the same for every USB port.
