Verifying DMI - Hard Drive Issue?

  1. Hey guys, just need a possible solution to my temporary problem. While restarting my computer yesterday after a few installs. I came across the infamous "DMI" hang in the boot. I unplugged both CD Drives and both HDD, upon plugging everything back up one by one. It ended up being the HDD with the operating system installed so I may have goofed up somewhere. Is there a way to restore the HDD or delete the current partition with the OS?

    Thanks in advance

    You don't say what operating system you use. If it is XP, you can try an XP repair. Most likely the MBR (Master Boot Record) is corrupt on the hard drive. You will have to boot from an XP CD to repair this. If you are running Vista, you can repair start up problems from Vista's install DVD
