Hello there! I have searched various sites on when systems hang on verifying data pool data. I have recently upgraded my old Abit IC7 max mobo to a IP35 pro. I have a Hitachi desktar HD 80gig that just holds my O/S of Win xp sp3 which I moved over to the Ip35. Once i get the verifying data pool and the system hangs, I wait for 5 to 10 minutes and I get please boot from CD. I checked the HD by installing in my other machine and it boots to XP with no problems. So I have ruled out a bad HD, I have uninstalled non necessary items such as sound card, etc. I have also removed one of my Kingston hyper X 1gb modules as well. My BIOS is rev. 14. Other specs Intel E7500, ATI HD4850, Hitachi HD mentioned above on IDE PATA and have swapped 3 different cables, ASUS CD drive on Sata 2, Antec tru power 650 power supply. I have reset the CMOS to no avail and beginning to think the mobo might be at fault. I did buy this IP35 pro used and is the only component that was not new. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
