Booting from a ghosted partition
Posted on 2003-11-24
Why can't I boot my workstation from my NT partition ?
I have four partitions on my one hard drive. Windows 98 is the first, Nt the second , 2000 the third, Xp the fourth. They are all setup as primary partitions. However, unlike the others, my NT partition is not installed from CD, but from a standard working image ghosted over from the server. Whenever I try to boot to this partition it blue screens with the error "HAl: MPS MP Structure not found. HAl: No MPS Table found. This Hal.DLL requires an MPS version 1.1 system. Replace Hal.Dll with the correct system etc, etc". I'm only running a single processor system and so are all the other workstations we use. The image is SP6 service packed. I've tried re-installing the Hal.dll with copies from a working workstation. If I try installing NT4 from Cd it boots ok but I don't get the corporate build that I need.
