All I did was install a new DVD drive...
Then when starting up it had Verifying DMI pool data" and did no more. After checking with new DVD drive unplugged that it still had the same problem I checked all connections on HDD. I tried a system boot disk but got out of it after it was trying to locate image. On restarting it now said remove pen drive and reboot. I had already removed the system reboot disk; if that's what it means. Help please people I'm lost.
Cheers

If it said remove pen drive..., I'm inclined to think you have some kind of USB memory stick or drive plugged into your PC.

Do you have a usb memory device plugged into the PC? If so, remove it and boot.

Thanks Ubercake

Yes that got rid of that one, now it says "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk" etc.

I have one but when it looks for an "Image" there's not one on it.

Grateful if you can assist a bit more.

Thanks again

Just to confirm, the system no longer works with the DVD drive unplugged from the SATA ports and the power supply but it worked before you installed the DVD drive? Or are you able to boot with the DVD drive removed?

You need to give full details of your hardware, OS is windows 7 x64?
Usually this type of thing happens when the PSU isunderpowered.

You need to set the Primary boot option to the Os hdd.
