ML330 G2 ACPI BIOS - Windows 2000 Server

Trying to install a Liteon DVD writer into a Proliant ML330 G3. However Windows 2000 stops with the folowing STOP message:-

STOP: 0x000000A5 (Parameter1, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4)
The ACPI Bios in this system is not fully compliant to the specification. Please read the readme.txt for possible workarounds, or contact your system vendor for an updated bios.

The bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."

According to the spec - the ML330 G2 is ACPI compliant!

can anyone help?

Does it produce this BSOD when the DVD burner is not installed?
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

No - boots up OK with no drive installed and with the original CD ROM drive installed.
