I have a second hard drive on my computer with an XP Home installation. When I try to boot to it I'm getting 'missing or corrupt HAL.dll'. I can boot from my main drive and access files on the failed drive. I've already tried replacing HAL.dll from my good installation as well as bootcfg /rebuild from Recovery Console and problem persists . Help!

Since you told us nothing about the system, I will include HP documentation, Hal.dll Missing Or Corrupt - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...product=3962105.
