Do you have an original Windows XP disk?
Not a restoration or recovery disk from a system manfacturer like Dell, Gateway, HP etc.
The hal.dll error is a simple fix with the recovery console if you have an XP cd.
I do not have my info on it on the system I am using.
Google the error message. But you will need access to the recovery console to fix it.
In the beginning there was the command line.
