Default Vista Install???

Has any one else tried to install Windows Vista? I got this error when trying to install it. I am tring to install it on an 15" MBP 1.83ghz with 1 gig of ram. I am using beta 6 of parallel workstation and this is the latest build of vista from the MSDN library. This happens at the start of the install preocess of vista.

A serious error is preventing Windows from starting correctly. To try to fix the problem insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer. Click view System Recovery Option (Advanced) and the run Startup Repair.

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufracturer for assistance.

Status 0xc0000225

Error when installing Windows Vista

Info: Windows failed to load because the firmware (BIOS) is not ACPI compatible.

Here is a screen capt of the error message.

Parallels does not yet support ACPI. Once it does you should be able to run Vista.
