The "NTLDR is missing" error comes from the Boot Sector of your hard drive trying to load it and not being able to find it.
The missing HAL.DLL usually comes from NTLDR trying to execute and for some reason it can't locate the HAL.DLL file
The usual "fix" for these type of errors is to run an hard drive diagnostic from the manufacturer of your hard drive.
If that tests OK, then enter the Recovery Console (instructions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-install-the-windows-xp-recovery-console/ ) and enter these 3 commands individually (press Enter after each one, and select Y (for Yes) to accept any prompts it makes)
If you still get the error after this, then the next step is to replace the file (in this case HAL.DLL) - but you've already done it so it shouldn't be necessary.
This'll fix most situations with boot errors - UNLESS there's a problem elsewhere. Let us know how it works out for you, and we can move on with more tests if necessary.
