At times, some systems may experience a hang condition after partitioning, formatting and initial boot-up of a hard drive. In Windows 95 and 98, changes to the motherboards BIOS settings, changes in hard drives or to hard drive settings alters this pool data. The message, "Verifying DMI Pool Data" appears and the system hangs. This condition may continue even after the physical drive has been removed from the system.
Apply power to the computer.
Access the system BIOS.
Set "Reset configuration data" to enable (most likely to be found in PCI/PnP section of BIOS)
Save the BIOS changes and restart PC.

Did you overclock? Sometimes when you overclock, it will hang on DMI verification. Check the bios for improper frequency multiplier/FSB speed settings, as well as default ram timing settings.
