Dear Sirs/Madam:

I have a Abit VP6 dual proc. I have a delima of an: "ERROR LOADING OPERATING
SYSTEM". I could not get my main HD to boot up no matter what I did including
a low format or a fill. I pulled it out and got one of my friends to format it
for me on his computer system using WinXPpro. When that was done I brought it
back to my system and my Win2Kpro disk booted up the HD. I wasen't shure if it
would boot rite so I reformated it agian using the boot up disk of Win2Kpro.
My HD is NTSF formated. After the full clean install I rebooted and went into
my CMOS and changed the boot set up to 1st: HD-0/ 2nd: CD-ROM/ 3rd: FLOPPY and
manually filled the CHS of my HD-0. As soon as I restarted it agian it went
through it's process of boot up. Afterwards it said "VERIFYING DMI POOL DATA",

This is what my setup looks like when it comes up:
CPU ID/ucode ID: 0686/08
CPU Clock: 1000B Mhz
Extended Memory: 2096128K
Cache Memory: 256K/ 256K

Diskette Drive A: 1.44M, 3.5in.
Diskette Drive B: none
Pri Master: CHS,ATA 100, 76GB
Pri Slave: none
Sec. Master: DVD-RW,ATA 33
Sec. Slave: none
Display Type: EGA/VGA
Serial Ports: 3F8 2F8
Parallel Ports: 378
SDRAM at DIMM: 0 1 2 3

manual mode: 16383 CYL
16 HDS

Boot up formation:

Hope you can help me, need help badly. You can email me back at:
