You haven't said which system you are using. Win9x/ME has a System32 folder but its not used generally the System folder is. Doing a web search for this always brings up WinXP, you've posted in the wrong forum. Do a Google for hal.dll and read similar problems. Hal is Hardware Abstraction Layer.

Thats a bit drastic without trying other options. :thumbsup:

HAL.DLL is Hardware Abstraction Layer (I think its a part of DirectX).

The problem, you have described, comes up when you first install Windows XP and later try to install Win98 trying to make your system dual boot (using some tricks). Now when you try to boot into Win98, the error pops up.

The only solution (that I know of is) to first install Windows 98 and later Windows XP.
