Yeah, I would get just to the "Verifying DMI pool data..." and then black screen... Now that I think about it, after resetting the CMOS, I tried just acting as thought I had my eyes closed and just tried operating the computer without the visuals, and now that i think about it, i was in 7, CTRL+alt+deleted twice and reset... It may or may not have been directly before it began to work... (I have a bad memory)


sorry, double post. Firefox crashed and post didn't show up when i re-loaded...

Well if it got to that step, then it did POST.. so it seems that your boot sequence files may be corrupted. Maybe when it was about to show you the dual boot screen, it didn't recognize the boot order of HDD or boot files stored on your HDD correctly, leading to a hang. If it's working fine, then that's a great news, but if the problem persists, I recommend taking out the dual boot and seeing how it works then. What are your dual boots btw?

Triple boot, actually: XP/Vista/7. Not sure why I have XP or vista anymore, but i don't need the space and everything was working, so there was no point in messing with it... As of now, everything is working fine, thanks for your help. I think i understand the issue a little more now in case it happens again.
