    Just purchased this motherboard (NF7-S2) and an Athlon XP 3200+,
    upgrading from an Abit KX7-333 and an Athlon XP 2100+. After POST, at
    "Verifying DMI Pool Data..........." my system will always reboot. I
    am using the same memory I used in my previous setup, 2x 256mg Corsair
    pc2700 (ddr333) CMX256. I've tried many different memory settings in
    BIOS (memory speed and CAS), but always the same result. I tried just
    1 module, and moved locations on the motherboard (DIMM1-3), same
    result. I also tried some other memory I had, 256mg pc2100 (ddr266),
    and the same problem occurs. Is this a motherboard issue? Or is
    there something else I need to try? Thank you very much,

    Since this is the last step of POST you should be looking more toward your
    OS bootstrap and any hardware (mainly hard drive) that could be at issue. If
    there was a problem with the memory then you probably wouldn't even get that

    Can we assume you have not done a clean install of a new O/S, and that
    you are trying to clone a VIA [ KX7 ] chipset operating system onto a
    nForce [ NF7-S2 ] motherboard ?

    Thanks for the quick relies =)

    This is a fresh install, both scsi drives low level formatted in the
    current system. I'll concentrate my efforts on the drives then, I
    have a spare controller lying around I'll toss in there.

    Thanks very much for the help, switching scsi controllers solved the
    problem, works like a charm now!
