Helping a friend set up some computer parts and running into an issue where it says "Verifying DMI Pool" for a while then says failed to load drive

 

Motherboard: (since this pertains to the mobo issue this could be of use)

gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 AM3+

 

 

All thats connected is the HDD no dvd/cd or other hdds

 

So far we've tried swapping to different sata ports on the mobo

Resetting the CMOS by removing the battery for a long period of time

Setting proper boot device order

 

 

I personally want to pull my hair out not because of the issue but because this friend has no patience and gets extremely frustrated at the issues and makes me want to scream in agony at them getting bleepy =.=

 

Any other ideas? The comptuer was working just fine a few months ago and then put as is in the closet until sold to this person and now suddenly when putting it back together this error occurs.

Before the OS tries to load you should have the ability to go into the BIOS screen and try choosing ' load performance defaults '

Sorry I forgot to mention that before restarting the CMOS by removing the battery we also did try to do a "Fail-safe default" bios settings

Windows 7, I'll give it a whirl and see but this was a last resort option simply because I don't see how a windows install can brick it's self when it was working then powered off for shipping and stopped owrking magically, yaknow? Just seems a bit far fetched but for sure worth a shot.

Derp,

 

Have you tried using a working hard drive?

 

Take that one that is in the PC out now and put in a different working hard drive and see if the problem shows up again.

 

If the problem does not show up, then you know there's a bad hard drive (the 1st one).

 

If the problem does show up, then more than likely the original hard drive needs to be re-partitioned and reformatted once again. 

Put the 1st hard drive back in and do the re-partitioning and reformatting.

 

Then install Win 7.

Seems like a hardware issue.  Start with basics check configurations what is the Drive Controller mode set to?  If its on IDE try switching it AHC in BIOS/CMOS settingsI?  Check the RAM if its good if you have a spare or one at a time, reseat it.

Thanks guys, got it figured out, the weirdest stuff can happen totally coincidentally. Somehow in the few months the computer sat unused and unplugged the hdd died so using a different one resolved all the issues.
