I have recently built from old parts a second PC. The PC is made from the following.
1) Gigabyte GA-586T2 Motherboard
2) Pentium 133Mhz CPU
3) 64mb DIMM
4) Seagate 130mb HDD
When i switch on the PC it seems to start to boot ok but then stops after displaying the messages
Building DMI Pool
Verifying DMI Pool Data
I have tried to boot from floppy but both system or non system disks seem to be ignored (FDD light illuminates) and i end up with the same message as above. I can enter the BIOS setup but everything seems in order (boot sequence, HDD detected etc). The motherboard was bought from a second user supplier so it is the only component i have not seen working before.
NOTE: My main PC is away for repair so i can only reply to this question when at work, So I apologise in advance for any delays as i work shifts (only 140 per year).
