I did an internet search on [ file\i386\halaacpi.dll could not be loaded ] and several possible reasons were discussed, including possible defective RAM module, damaged or 'smudged' installation media, the need to completely reformat the drive (not just a 'quick' format), and more.

People also had success by simply removing all but one memory stick...which is basically the KISS principle at work. To reduce the chance of things going wrong, or software getting "confused", you minimize system complexity as much as possible before performing any OS install and/or repair. (note: on some motherboards, you may have to put memory in SPECIFIC slots depending on how many sticks you have and whether you have selected 'unganged' or 'ganged' (aka dual-channel) memory controller operation. Only your motherboard manual can tell you what is correct.

You should also disable ALL power management functions in BIOS/UEFI prior to an OS install/repair.
