Hi, I downloaded the latest installation iso and burned it to a cd and set my computer to boot from cd rom.
I have tried to look around and figure out what this is but can't figure it out.
It is a brand new Gigabyte motherboard with AMD 790X chipset and an AMD Phenom II processor.
That is why you can reinstall the OS on a Dell or HP without getting the nag about activating within 60 days.
DMI has been superseded by a newer standard called CIM. As other's have mentioned, reseting the BIOS will usually make this message go away. I would update the BIOS, reset it to factory defaults, and if that doesn't do the trick, do an RMA on it and try a new one.
It could also mean, that your mainboard is having some trouble reading from the hard drive.
I had a similar problem when I had a USB stick attached and it wanted to boot/read from there first. " a comment about what it just did, or something I should do?(which it does) Never seen this before and it happens every single time the computer starts up. In addition the computer is quite unstable, but trying to run Windows 7 RC, so can't really be sure if it is the hardware, drivers or OS that is unstable.The System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) is an extension of the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) that formulates and delivers this information to the operating system. In short, when the BIOS is "Verifying DMI pool data" it is verifying the table of data it sends to the operating system (Windows, etc.). If you changed the hardware just before this problem occurred (e.g., installed a new hard disk drive), unchange it. If you installed a new hard disk drive, set the motherboard CMOS Setup to Auto for the drive type. (Rebooting will automatically disabled it after it has done its thing.) 4. Its main use is for corporations to manage and track PCs they have purchased.
