alright so here's the situation I got into. After partitioning my new hard drive i made the mistake of installing Windows XP on my new hard drive too
. Now whenever I try to start up windows xp this error occurs: This file is missing or corrupt: <Window Root>\system32\hal.dll
how can i get my OS to work like normal again?
(b/c now it doesn't work at all)!!
Things i tried:
1.Replacing the hal.dll file with another working hal.dll file on the C:/windows/system32
2.Repairing the Old hard drive
3.changing different boot confiqs in BIOS
4.taking out harddrive/unpartitioning new hard drive
