Ah,the A5 BSOD, the bane of my life.
This is an ACPI issue.
That last paramter, 494e495f, is a *CLUE*. It is ASCII. It is _INI. No idea if that helps.
There is more info available ... just google Windows A5 Stop.
Excerpt from KB 314830 :
(0x00000003, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4):
This error is defined as "ACPI failed must succeed method." This error occurs if ACPI cannot build a control method to reference the ACPI namespace. Other arguments for this error reference the ACPI object that was being run and the name of the control method. One greatly simplified explanation (which might not be completely accurate) is that the system cannot find a way to get to the ACPI tables that define the Plug and Play and Power Management capabilities of the system.
