Window 7 DMI Pool data

Hi
i just Upgraded from Vista 32bit on my Acer aspire m5100 ( it not a laptop).

The installation goes fine every time i try reinstalling windows 7 to see if it could fix the DMI POOL DATA. But after the final configuration of windows 7 and the last reboot before it is finish to install i get stuck on Verifying DMI Pool Data. i have updated my Bios and it still get stuck on DMI Pool Data.

The only thing that i changed on the default spec is i added a Gforge 7900 GTO. i don't know if this does help but since the CPU i have is 64 bit compatible i think window 7 might have installed itself has a 64 bit

Any clue what wrong here?

    Hi

    Had the same problem, Acer Asprire M5100 as well but managed to cure it - do the following and pass this info on, I know how helpful things like this can be when trying for days on end to get something working.

    I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7, got the same error "Verifying DMI Pool Data" and hanging.

    To fix this boot from the windows 7 dvd again, select the Repair Windows section, select the command prompt option, type BOOTREC.EXE /FIXBOOT and hit enter, close the command prompt and select restart - all is now ok :) P.S This also works for Windows Vista

    ( I also couldnt get the NVIDIA Windows 7 driver to change the resolution once I got Windows 7 working, so removed card and works perfect with the onboard ATI Inbuilt card.)
  2. Thank you it works fine after doing the Prompt option.
    Thanks again you saved me a lot of time.
    les't hope this will also help people that get the same error i did
  3. It works!!!
    Thank you very much, after searching for 2 days I finally found your answer!
