My system is a EX58 extreme motherboard with one stick of G.Skill DDR3 ram, core i7 processor and Radeon HD 4870 x 2 graphics card with a 500GB hard drive and a 2 TB hard drive. The PSU gives 1050 watts. When I boot up the computer gets as far as the "verifying DMI pool data" screen then hangs up. The "verifying DMI pool data screen stays on the monitor

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

Simply try to Clear CMOS, your GA-EX58-EXTREME has a 'Clr CMOS' button; unplug and hold the button 5~10 seconds then set your 'specific' BIOS settings and the Date and Time. IF the Date/Time is the same then you didn't clear the CMOS. How to video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdHH9KrceR0

The most common causes:
1. Corrupted BIOS/clear or Update if needed
2. Media in the ODD (DVD/BR) eject it or change boot order
3. Bad SSD/HDD/MOBO test disconnect 'other' drives or use a donor HDD from another PC to boot
4. Shorting

Glad to hear it's working. The following are additional steps the I recommend to keep you corruption free and that the correct drivers are loaded in Windows.

Housekeeping - verify that the BIOS and Windows registry are both correct.
AHCI = 0 = Start value
IDE = 3 = Start value
Verify registry, you can either allow 'Fix It' to set the Start values or do in manually; See -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
Open regedit and verify, for e.g. AHCI, are correct; See -> http://i1013.photobucket.com/albums/af254/Jaquith/AHCI_...

Then run SFC or better both options as shown, schedule, and restart; See -> http://i1013.photobucket.com/albums/af254/Jaquith/Scan-...

Good Luck! :)
