<windows root>\system32\hal.dll error
Hi all hope someone can help me.
Major problem with my laptop, on turning it on I receive the message, could not boot as there was a missing file.
I donât have an original Windows XP cd as it was damaged so I tried to boot from my pcâs Windows CD with no joy, I recently replaced the original cd-rom with a cd-rw drive, not sure if that could have anything to do with it.
I've tried changing the BIOS to boot from cd-rom, but no joy with that, i'm now stumped.
Is it possible to re install by going into DOS? Or is it because the PC Windows CD is a newer version.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated, cheers, Kets.
