What do you mean "flashing" when you say it hangs there flashing?

DMI stands for Desktop Management Interface. It is some feature that saves system settings and makes it easier to switch harddrives or something (it allows multiple users custom settings to be transferred more easily, something of that nature). Anyhow, it is normal to see this and the PCI listings right after post, so that's not the problem.

Have you actually installed WinXP Home Edition yet? Or do you have a blank harddrive without an OS?

You shouldn't post your questions twice. Isn't this the same problem as listed in 'Just when you think you've got it'? Go see my suggestion there.
