I have tried clearing the CMOS in every fashion possible.When I do it boots up goes to "Verifying DMI pool data...... I have unplugged and plug back in both my hd's as well as my ram. The work around I figured out is to use a Super Grub2 Live CD to detect the Grub2 configuration file on my home directory which resides on /dev/sda7.
All of a sudden today, I go to reboot and start up and my pc gets past posting and sticks on "Verifying DMI pool data" then "booting from CD"There is no disc in the CD drive.
I have tried switching the boot order up tried loading from both my hard drives.
update success" which i'm assuming means the CMOS was cleared.
The DMI (Desktop Management Interface) is an abstraction layer provided by your system management BIOS that provides information about your computer's hardware to your operating system.
As per advice I found on Google, I tried reverting to factory default settings in the BIOS.
This yielded Update Success after ``Verifying DMI Pool Data,`` but it still hangs. My Ubuntu Live environment detects all the hard drives.
If your computer is stuck at "Verifying DMI pool data", we recommend running through the following steps to make sure your hardware is properly configured and detected by your BIOS.
If you've tried the above recommendations and your computer continues to freeze at the DMI message, it may be a sign that one of your hardware components is malfunctioning.
My BIOS was probably looking for an O/S on those two storage USB sticks and it couldnt find any.
