I am trying to transplant a 540m HD from a Compaq 486 with win95 OS to a box with an
AMD 200 mhz and it locks up at Verifying DMI Pool Data.  How do I get past this?

Will the machine boot off floppy disk? If Yes then the boot sector is corrupted on the machine and can be fixed by booting off floppy and then applying the sys command to the drive.  You will need a win95 boot disk with the sys.com file on it. You then can sys the drive and fix the boot sector.  If the machine will not boot then it is time to look for other solutions.

Compaq always provide their own solutions to everything so it might just be that you can´t move the drive because compaq has a different boot....

If your machine boots from a floppy, check the harddisk configuration for the harddisk in the CMOS setup. If it is not compatible with the current format on the harddisk, you will get this error. The suggested configuration in the harddisk auto detection area may be "LBA", when your disk is formatted normally. Don't select with Y/N, use 1, 2, 3. Check if any of the options given solves the problem.

You didn't say whether or not the drive was installed alone, or with an existing drive in the 200Mhz system.
Double-check the drive's configuration (master/slave) and the data cable connection.  The colored stripe is to be oriented towards pin-1 of the connector at rear of the drive.
Let me know if you need more.

Ralph
