i recently had 2 viruses on my computer. so i wiped the hard drive, and now when i start up my computer, it loads all the way through until it says:
Verifying DMI pool data ...........
Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM :
and it stops there. even more problomatic is the red light on my case that indicated whether the hard drive is working on something or not, and when it comes to the above message, it turns red and stays that way until i reboot my computer. when i try to put in the XP Installation cd, nothing happens, even when i restart my system.
I have no operating system on my hard drive.
I have no data at all on my hard drive.
When the computer loads the message "Verifying DMI pool data ...........
Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM :" it stops.
Putting a CD in will not change anything.
I have a SOYO SY-K7VMP2 w/ VIA KM400 Chipset and Pheonix Award BIOS.
Please as i am very and would apreciate any help ASAP.
