I had bios 1.0.8.
I successfully updated to bios 1.0.13.

I am unable to reinstall or do windows repair.
windows failed to load because the firmware (BIOS) is not ACPI compatible

This never happened with bios 1.0.8. I have read and tried every suggestion
on my630i boards and on DCF. :( No love!

During my reading I found an old thread where you hosted a zip file of bios 1.0.7.
Thank you for that. I have the file saved for possible future use.

Now my question is 2 fold...
Is it possible to fallback to 1.0.7 since 1.0.8 was original for me? (since I have owned it)
Or, do you by chance have another zip file of 1.0.8?

Everyone please chime in here....I have made so much progress and this would
be a crap deal if I am stuck with this scenario.

OMFG....

I found this dang site that had the bios 1.0.8
Has everything pretty much it looks like.
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Pages/Drivers/xps-630-all.html#BIOS

I been reading these forums for weeks and just today stumbled across this.

Still though...do you think it will work?

It's worth a try--I don't recall Dell saying anything about not flashing back to an older BIOS version...
