Area-51 m15x Windows 10 upgrade problem

Hi guys. I got a pre-dell Area-51 m15x (with NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT) from early 2009 which still runs like a charm with Windows 7.
Now I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but the installation always fails after reboot with ACPI BIOS ERROR.
Searching the web I found some people having the same problem and finding no solution. However some say they successfully upgraded their machines, for example in this thread whitealien states he did it.

So I give it a try and ask here:
Can anyone confirm running Windows 10 on a pre-dell m15x machine? If so, please state how exactly you installed / upgraded and which drivers used.

Help will be very much appreciated, thank you!
