computer always reboot when the system display verifying/building DMI pool...
before that, i enable the RAID config and Physical SATA 1 and reboot. then, i press for RAID setup. I select STRIPPING RAID and add to array.
i press [Ctrl+X] to exit. when the system boots again from CDROM, the installer initiates and i press for SCSI and other RAID setup. the installer got an error
saying "cannot extract nt*.exe may be corrupted."
i reset the system but when reboots, the computer stops in black screen and i look the diagnostic led..the last one was lit. (VGA i think). i shut the system by
pressing PWR in long press and unplug the cord.
I reset the BIOS jumper and remove everything video card ,memory, floppy, CDROM and SATA drive. I installed again and boot-up..same the problem still exist
"verifying/building DMI pool.." then reboots.

this time, i remove 1 memory in dimm 4 (slot 4), remove CDROM and SATA drive, reset safe boot jumper and clear bios jumper. modifiy bios priority sequence
- 1st for removable and disable the rest. I enable also floppy seek during startup and "Load optimize defaults", and load Win98 start-up disk.
when i rebooted the system, it reads the floppy during POST but after listing the device and reads the floppy, the system hang-up - the light still on without any
activity from floppy (but i check this floppy from my office is was OK. i created 3 win98 startup disk). so, i presume the disk is bad.
so, this time i remove the floppy and CDROM(Secondary Slave) only active in priority, no SATA Drive. i turned the system the POST was successful but
when going to read the CDROM the computer hang-up again. (i tried this CD at the office - to boot my computer and it was OK).
i tried also the bootable CDROM i created from NERO. i booted the system but when going to access the menu either 1 or 2. the computer hang-up.
but two times, the CDROM(WinXP CD) reads my CD and display like this:
(these zero's is not as many or less as i wrote here..for illustration purposes only, i cannot count them)
trap 0006 ...000 (...lot of zero)
gdt limit=03FF base=0...0
(this error was twice i encountered only.)
i guess the memory so, i change the dimm4 with other one. i passed the POST until verifying or builing DMI pool only and it reboots.
i also encountered during POST hang-up and some small veritical lines and dots(one time only).
Several POST unsuccessful( 2 or 1 led remaining) and blank screen after POST.
tonight( 07/07/2005), i will try to create new sets of win98 startup disk and Red Hat Linux 8.0 to boot.
I didn't overclocked and used only the bios "Load optimize defaults" option.
hoping your favorable reponse....i don't have bucks left for new expense
