Windows 7: Errors, sweet errors...

Errors, sweet errors...

Hello everyone.
I recently installed Windows 7 on my other computer, and I thought everything was going well. Well then I restarted after the installation only to find that it hangs at "Verifying DMI Pool Data". Then, when I restart again and select boot menu, it asks for a password, which I don't have because I didn't set one yet. Could anyone help me on this issue?
Appreciated,
John

Is there a default password or something?

I'm guessing that's a bios password.

Backdoor passwords


Find the brand or manufacturer of your BIOS and then use some of the passwords given there.

John Hi and welcome

This may be part and parcel of the pool data but fortunatley has several easy cures. look here for how to reset it How do I Reset a BIOS Password? . The hardware cmos, and jumpers are easy. If you can find the hardware jumper do that first

Good luck and let us know if you need help

There is a program which resets the BIOS password or something. Let me go search it.

I actually found two of them.

!BIOS

CmosPwd


I don't know really how to use them since I haven't had this problem yet at least. But I think you might need a USB stick or something. Refer to the help sections of the software.

Hey that looks cool and everything, but will Cmospwd work without starting the computer? Like if I burn it to a disk or something.

Since, I never tried, I can't tell. But I'm pretty sure that's what it was made for.

I just figured out how to open my computer, gonna reset the BIOS password using the CMOS battery I'll tell you if it works.

Ok I got past the BIOS password so I'm gonna try Jacee's article.
Wish me luck!
