DMI Data Pool

I think I closed my question too soon so I'll ask it again.  I'm getting the "Verifying DMI data pool" message upon boot up and system hangs there.

I've did an FDISK and reformatted the drive.  The system begins to load WIN 98 until it gets to the first reboot part, then the message appears again.  If I boot from a floppy, I can access the C: drive and see whatever file which have been loaded, but if I boot from C: to continue installation of Win 98 then the message appears again.
Any solutions?  Is this still a virus problem?  Thanks.

Did you have a virus to before that caused you to reformat??

Try hewittg suggestion and if it doesn't help. Try your fdisk again but this time delete all partitions, Reboot and create your partitions and set the pri to active, reboot and try you WIN98 install. I have had viruses that required not only reformatting but doing the above

Good Luck

Have you tried the "fdisk /mbr" command?

I cannot find a link to the document. However it is called:
accepted anser from dew_associates 6/16/2002 10:23pm pdt, method 1. It is also part of the document with the title: Verifying DMI Pool Data 11/1/2000 11:21PM PST - Author: Nishit.

When I printed it out at home, at the top of each page was:
Windows 98: Pwr Quest's "Drive Image 2" problems. - My question was referring to page 5 out of 7.

Incidentally, I remember the univac1108, Exec 8, FortranV, that was great fun at NYU approx 1970-72.
