hall.dll missing - cannot boot from disc to get into recovery console
I came home to find the following error message:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copy of the above file.
I've read and tried all the links pertinent to fixing this problem.
1) I cannot boot from disc - I get a disc boot error when I try
2) I have already rearranged the boot order in BIOS to every possible combination. CD-ROM and Floppy before HDD-0 does not work.
3) All I really want to do is re-install XP. I have two harddrives, a 60 gig and a 120 gig. I have a CD-rom and a DVD-rom drive. How can I get my computer to boot from disc?
