Hello there,

 

My Windows XP Pro machine suddenly halts boot-up at ' Verifying DMI pool data. Update success '

The drives are recognised at that point  ( although NOT named in the BIOS ) and the BIOS is set to boot from H/D then CD then floppy

All internal connections are firm.

It's a fairly elderly Gigabyte MOBO but no sign of any cap. swell.

 

Solution sought-  and a merry Christmas to All.

I copy Alredzen's post from that link, hamluis thank you, as it's my position too;

 

"  

I have tried to above suggestions to have the computer to start normally, unfortunately, nothing has worked. I tested the memory with memtest and it came with no errors. I even purchased new ram: but the problem does not appear is the ram, as it came out okay. The problem now is for the computer to recognize the hard drive. It does not recognize the hard drive in BIOS and thus it is unable to load the OS. I was unable to perform a repair on the OS due to the same issue: no hard drive detected. I have checked the all the cables are firmly connected and that BIOS has the auto detect option enabled, also the boot order to boot from hard drive, but it does not recognize the hard drive at all.

I have tried several other things, like inserting the new RAM in different spots, but nothing has worked; the computer will not recognize the hard drive at all, not even in BIOS.

Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.  "

Remove the hard drive...attach it to another known good system as a secondary drive...see if it's properly detected and readable/accessible.

Thanks Louis.  I'll try a different drive in the faulty boot machine as it currently has a RAID pair.   I'm getting ' healthy stripe ' in the pre-boot messaging though.  It's a head-scratcher.

I've tried a different drive to no effect.  The boot still hangs at ' Verifying DMI pool data. Update success '.

 

I've disconnected all IDE drives , rotated the memory one by one, still hangs.   BIOS looks good and boot is still reporting ' healthy stripe '
