I fix the problem with the missing or corrupt system32/hal.dll issue, it seemingly was boot.ini related.
How can I prevent this in the future, is there anything I can do?

Hi dbonniwell. Do you know for sure what caused this to hapen in the first place ? If you do then don't do this again !! (Just kidding. Patient: "Doctor, Doctor! It hurts when I do this!" Doctor: "Don't do that!")

You have to know the cause and even if you do you may not be able to prevent this in the future. This may have happened due to no action of your own. You may not be able to trace the cause to something specific that you did.

You were able to fix the problem but didn't say how you did this. There may be no good defense against this, but at least you know what to do if it happens again.

Would you share with us how you fixed the problem ? Oh yes, and why this happened to begin with, if you know ?

I fixed it using the recovery mode with the XP install CD. I am sure many folks out there know about that.then I did a bootcfg/rebuild
I sat down an tried to figure out what I did but I did nothing out of the ordinary.
I read on the I-net that there are others that had this problem, One person threw out their computer over it.
I have been playying Oblivion. but thats normal usage.
I just booted up and it happen and I cannot figure out what I did to it before that.
thanks

You are very fortunate that you have an Installation CD and not a Reinstallation CD. Most pre-built computers don't come with an Installation CD.
