Boot up in safe mode.

Right click My computer/properties/device manager.

Look at the HDD and CD drives. Do you have the DMA box ticked for any of them?

Untick if you can, and see if that does it.

Boot up in safe mode.

How can he get into Windows when he hasn't passed <b>Verifying DMI pool</b> screen?

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

Check your BIOS to see if voltage and temp are OK, and/or maybe change RAM's setting more conservative.

And if that doesn't help try resetting the BIOS.

My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek:  .

I'm actually having the same problem -- does anyone know how to fix this? I haven't even gotten to the windows xp install phase yet.
