Why to use ACPI for eComStation? You should install ACPI for
eComStation to:

Common (Notebooks, servers, barebones):
* to initialize PC (the devices are not initialized on boot without
ACPI),
* to use multi-core CPU (Core Duo, AMD X2). Especially, if you want
run computer in APIC mode,
* device drivers for eComStation depend on ACPI,
* ACPI provides information about the computer to drivers,
applications and system information utilities.

Notebook, barebone:
* to control power management (suspend/resume/poweroff)
* to reduce power consumption

For developer:
* The main purpose of the driver is to provide ACPI interface to
applied developers.

please pay attention to node resources:

A) Check your system (util\acpi-test.cmd) if PC doesn't boot with ACPI
driver.

C) Discussing How to boot eComStation on PC with AMD-chipset if ACPI
is enabled
(the behavior of PC changes, eComStation is not ready for this
behavior), forum -- http://forum.ecomstation.ru/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6456
