Windows 7 boot BSOD: 0x000000A5: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.
After a successful installation of Window 7 on an external USB drive, during boot, I get this BSOD:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your
system vendor for an updated BIOS.

Technical information:

*** Stop: 0x000000A5 (0x0000000000000011, 0x0000000000000008, 0xFFFFFA80074416E8, 0

Is it possible in WinToUSB to install Windows 7 with "Standard PC HAL" instead of "ACPI HAL"?

In manual Windows installation it seems it can be done by pressing F7 during Windows Setup startup:
Are you sure your computer is compatible with Windows 7? If you want to run Windows 7 on a computer, you must ensure that the computer is compatible with Windows 7 (computers built in recent years are usually not compatible with Windows 7), otherwise Windows will not work properly.
