Verifying DMI pool data... system halt

During start up, a message " Verifying DMI pool data....",
the system then halt.What can I do to resolve it. I have tried to modify CMOS SETUP settings, but it doesn't help.

The 'Award' BIOS always displays this message,
unless you have added/subtracted hardware since the last cold-boot.

After displaying this message, the BIOS tries to read
the "boot" information from your hard-drive.
If it cannot read from your hard-drive, it will "halt".
If it does read the boot-record, and the information has been
"corrupted", possibly by a computer-virus, it will "halt".

So, put a bootable diskette into the A-drive,
reset the BIOS to try to boot first from the A-drive,
and see if you can boot from the diskette.
If so, then enter 'DIR C:' and see if that "hangs",
or if it displays a list of files on your hard-drive.
If it does, then insert another diskette,
i.e., one containing a virus-checker, and check for viruses.
(Or, try to run a virus-checker which you previously loaded
onto your hard-drive.)
