Stuck at "verifying dmi pool data..".

  CDL 22:43 10 Nov 2006

On a recent restart of my XP machine,it didn't get past checking the drives and gave a message that there was a fault with the primary drive. In this case the primary drive is a removable drive in a caddy.

I removed the drive and rebooted but now I cant get past "verifying dmi pool data..". where the machine hangs.

Any help please.

Thank you.

Thanks anskyber

Disconnected/reconnected all drives and cleared CMOS - that seems to have done the trick,all up and running again. Wonder what caused it.

Thanks again for the links.
