Default Verifying DPI Data Pool

I have a hardware problem that has me stumped.

I have an gigabyte MB with an AMD CPU, 512 MB Ram, IDE drive.

I have changed out the MB, Memory and HD and get the same result: It hangs after the Verifying DMI Pool.

I have got it to boot to the CDROM by making it master and not connecting the HD, however every time I connect the HD it hangs. I have replaced the HD and get the same result.

Replace your IDE cables, one is more than likely damaged.

what OS do you have on the hard drive(s)?
and does it hang at POST, or when it loads the OS?

The problem was a bad CPU. I replaced the CPU and all is good.
