    Appreciate some assistance

    Building a pc with a Gigabyte 6BA v 2.5 Mainboard, Pentium II 350MHz/100MHZ FSB, 4 DiMMs with a total of 512MB SDRAM and BIOS 01/28/99-i440BX-W977-2A69KG0AC-00. Trying to boot with W98SE boot disk to install OS, and the boot will not go past "Verifying DMI Pool Data".

    Any ideas of what could cause this hang up?

    Checked the BIOS and thought things look OK, but maybe not.

    Sometimes a BIOS flash is required to resolve that one.

    If you can hook IMM over at VDR, he's got the best help record for this one I've seen :)

    You'll probably be asked to disconnct the HD and any other hardware and reset the BIOS defaults and ESCD data, reboot and shut down several times.

    Watch you're not overclocking things in setting up the motherboard

    Thank you for your reply

    Tried all sorts of suggestions, and it is still no-go.

    You were right, manufacturer suggests a BIOS Flash.

    Will not do dat!

    In addition, the CPU fan quit, so, got rid of the mainboard.


    Have a nice weekend.
