Hi all,
I have an almost new HP dv6 I-7 pro and used windows update in xp mode and now it will not boot in XP, a black dos looking screen pops up and says windows root\system32\hal.dll missing or corrupt. Please re-install a copy of this file.
I see this file in C\win\sys32
If someone has this and can send it, maybe I can re-install it. If, that is the right thing to do. Please advise.

Ended up un-installing the virtual XP mode and re-installing it.
All seems to be well now.
