"It could also mean, that your mainboard is having some trouble reading from the hard drive. I had a similar problem when I had a USB stick attached and it wanted to boot/read from there first. Well and running a Microsoft Preview is always very likely to be unstable ;)
I found some other hints on a German forum entry which may help you, too even though it is only when the bootup freezes at the DMI pool verifying:

Reset Bios settings
After hardware installation: Set ""Force Update ESCD"" or ""Reset Configuration Data"" to enabled
Broken IDE / SATA cable
Broken master boot record (MBR): Run fdisk /mbr and sys c: from a bootup terminal
Bad hardware, including BIOS chip
Virus"

"Sounds like a bad board. I would update the BIOS, reset it to factory defaults, and if that doesn't do the trick, do an RMA on it and try a new one.

DMI stands for Desktop Management Interface and is the part of the BIOS that makes it easier for the operating system to get device information, etc. from the BIOS."
