Verifying DMI Pool Data issue in Fedora

Hi, just doing my 1st ever Fedora install on a new pc and the disk (cd disk 1) got jammed in the cd tray during initial install. I removed it and restarted but the pc just stops at the "Verifying DMI Pool Data" element and wont move past it.

I have tried restarting with the cd1 in the drive, to no avail.

Any ideas????

Remove power from the PC, then remove the CMOS battery from the mainboard and change it. After that reboot into the BIOS and set it up correctly again.
