Usually if it stops at "verifying dpmi pool data" the OS has gotten corrupted sometimes if it is left at this screen for 30 mins it might clear and boot

    John, It is looking for the hard drive. It apparently cant find it.

    Make sure that the ribbon cable is good and is on tight.





    If you are using a sata drive. When you install XP you will need the SATA drivers on a floppy.
    There comes a point in the installation where it will ask if you are installing
    onto a drive other than IDE at which point it asks you to push F6 and to insert
    the drivers ...it will only look for them on a floppy.

My pc won't boot from cd-rom... Bios recognizes both cd-rom drive and hdd, and boot sequence is set to boot from cd-rom but when it comes to boot from the windows XP install dvd it shows the message...


you are saying two differnt things here.. CDROM and DVD if its a dvd in a CD ROM it will not boot a windows disk if somehow this is written to a DVD Is it original?
Secondly is the Cd ( or DVD drive) actaully working. Being listed in CMOS does not guarantee that.

I know you have listed the drive as DVD but do you have 1 or two drives installed and not have the disk in the recognised drive.; have to eliminatge all possibilities of werror in interpretation here.

So assuming everything appears as it should, then the medial in the drive has to be considered at fault .. dirty disk.. drive needs iris clean, not an original disk, damaged disk, not a boot disk.. just a windows cvopy.;

Trying to boot pc from cd but it only boots normal way . Ofc i changed boot prio ..but nothing happends, any idea whats wrong ?


Try booting up with a windows98 bootable disk. If it displays the BIOS, select default settings and try to boot in safe mode & try restoring it to a time when it worked properly................sodeep
PS: Use a CD/DVD cleaner CD to cleam the optical head of the ROM

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

I can't use HDD sata on mainboard ASUS P5RD1-VM


Things need to be turned on in your bios patrohi. This is why windows didn't boot to the SATA. You need to use your manual & make sure the, Serial ATA Controller is [Enabled]
Within the Advanved menue under SouthBridge Configuration.
At the Main menue the SATA drive should be listed.
Boot settings need to change as well. At Boot Settings Configurations. Make sure your SATA drive is listed.
Boot order should list like, Floppy 1st, CDROM 2nd, SATA 3rd. The SATA will not list as a SATA but the model number of the SATA drive. Once all these settings are set save & exit. Your drive should show up for work & the windows CD should load.

K8 Neo-2 V-2.0


Please connect jPw1 to 4 Pin 12v, this supplies power to CPU. Than enter Bios & find Boot settings. Set the cdrom as boot 1 & hd as boot 2. Check the jumper on the cdrom, as it is the only device on secondary IDE controller it should be set as a master.
It is better to install a fresh copy of windows with a new motherboard. Put your windows CD in the cdrom & the system will boot to it. And your on your way. You can install the drivers for the board after windows has been installed.
Enjoy!
Plaease vote..
