When I replace my 60GB second harddrive with a 200GB drive it stops at verifying dmi pool data, when I put the 60GB drive back in it boots, ok, what could be causing that?

The bios recogonizes the 200GB drive ok.

Though this is not the correct place to be posting this sort of thing, you may want to provide a LOT more information than the above if you intend on finding someone with the time to help you out. For instance, we have no idea what OS your running, kernel version, hardware. The more information you give, the better your chances of getting a reasonable answer.

The above may give you some guidance, but its only a few pointers.

You might need to reset the configuration in your bios as well OR your bios might not be able to handle a 200 gig drive without a upgrade.

How do i know if the bios can handle 200gb? How do I upgrade bios?

This is for a cpanel server and im sure others will run into this problem.
