I was completing a drive format and installation of Windows XP. When I set the partition as active and re-booted, the boot sequences froze at "verifying DMI Pool Data". The partition I'm trying to boot from is located at the beginning of the drive, 8 megs from the start (according to partition magic). It is an NTFS Primary partition, set as active. There is also a Fat32 partition located on the last 5 gigs as a network share, misc storage. Does anyone know what DMI Pool data is and how to fix it? The NTFS partition in question is a result of merging 3 smaller Fat32 partitions, the c: was windows 2000 Pro SP4(the drive was primarily storage, we tried to use it to build another system). I've checked the disk for errors and it comes up good. Is this a BIOS issue? Please help!
