stuck in start up

I just put together a new system. I started it up and was installing Mandrake 8.1 and messed up somewhere. I had to shut down and was going to start up again and I couldn't get it to get past "Verifying DMI pool data" in start up. It will go into BIOS (everything looks alright there) but still can't get past start up.
