    Model: Sony VAIO VPCEC 1M1E PCG-91112M
    Motherboard foxconn 1P-009CJ00-8011 MBX-225 M980
    BIOS : R0300Y8.ROM
    BIOS brand : AMI aptio V4 ?, BIOS UEFI compatible.

    Hi, first sorry for my bad english, I'm French.
    I recently buyed for parts a laptop without hard drive. When I try to install windows the laptop stuck on multiple step. (I can share videos)

    -Windows 10 : directly after "press a key to boot from usb" when the windows logo appears before the balls rotation.
    -Windows 10 pré-installed from another computer : same stuck on logo.
    -Windows 7 : after loading files, the laptop screen go dark.
    -Windows 7 safe mode : stuck at pnp.sys or disk.sys
    - Xp : Dark screen after enumerating all drivers
    - Xp acpi=off : bluescreen
    [​IMG]
    -Ubuntu : installation complete only if acpi=off and works flawless without extra fn key fonctions else with acpi= on verbose stuck at "Freeing SMP alternatives memory : 32K"
    [​IMG]

    All components seems to be ok, I tried liveXP or windows to go key made with rufus. 2 another RAM stick.

    Have you tried disabling ACPI, installing Windows, and then turning on ACPI?

    Check your BIOS settings. Restore default settings. Disabling UEFI is a good idea.

    Are you using a new HDD or was it previously used in a UEFI enabled computer? Use DISKPART, etc. to clean the HDD and try again.

    Hi thanks for your help, I cleaned the disk using diskpart. I got the same problem. The bios is very limited take a look on pictures. I wonder If I can find recovery data disk to restore data from factory ? or maybe unlock the bios to force ACPI off or BIOS mode only. Another things the wired network Marvell Yukon seems to be down.
