How to get past "Verifying DMI pool data" on boot-up ?

Currently I get the message "Verifying DMI pool data" on boot-up and then the system doesn't boot any further. This happened after a bios update flash - which appeared to go fine (no error messages during flash). I can still enter the BIOS but can't boot.

Machine is an Acer Aspire T180. OS Windows XP MCE 2005.

What can I do about that?

Try resetting BIOS data - use reset jumper (disconnect power and PSU: look at manual for exact instructions) or remove battery for 10 min - 1 hour.

If you are certain that the HDD is recognized in BIOS, try enabling "Reset Configuration Data" in BIOS and rebooting. This item will be reset to disabled after the boot.

go into the BIOS and try a Load Defaults and a Save and Exit. Strange things occur sometimes after bios update if the CMOS is not reseted to the *new* default values.
