Re: my WINME stuck up at "Verrifying DMI Pool Data"
I guess there's something wrong with the hard drive. Usually, if stuck at this point, it could be because the hard drive is not being detected.
Press DEL or F2 key and check if HDD is being detected. If not, remove/change the HardDisk cables.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

What Windows version are you using? You may be able to restore a previous registry if you are using Win98 or WinME.
This thread really belongs in the appropriate OS forum
Also verify that you are actually in safe mode and not just looking at a
standard VGA screen. When you start up, does it actually say "safe
mode" in the 4 corners and ask you to "ok" it?
If you are not actually in safe mode, try going to Display Settings and
resetting your resolution and color depth. If that doesn't work, you may
need to reinstall your video drivers, however reinstalling a previous
registry often works for the problem.
Try holding the ctrl key down starting up if you have Win98. Choose the
"command prompt" option if available. At the c:\> prompt enter:
use the arrow keys to select a prior started registry.
If you have WinME, use your WinME startup disk and select "minimal boot"; at the a:\> prompt enter scanreg /restore
Sometimes this can be even simpler. Put in your Windows CD and boot to safe mode command prompt and type fixmbr. This will repair your master boot record for your primary boot harddisk. Eject the windows CD and reboot and see if it fixes your problem.
Ok from what I can tell as long as you have at least 100mb of RAM(Estimate based on my pc) You should be able to install and use the software. Please note that you must also meet the Criteria to be able to help people with that software.
Put all these files in one folder and when windows ask for the drivers, select the option to manually serach for the drivers. And point the search to the folder where you saved these files and it should fix the problem. If this does'nt work, please let me know.
Click Start, click Run, type MSCONFIG (hit enter), click the button labeled “Extract File…” For the name of the file you want to restore, type EGA.CPI. Restore from your Windows Millennium CD (if your CD is your D: drive, type: D:\WIN9X). Save File In: C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND. (Found that in msconfig (international) pointing to display data file c:\windows\command file EGA.CPI).
