I have been experiencing the hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe missing or corrupt issues, and upon "fixing" the ntskrnl.exe issue from a question and answer here, I now get another error:
Windows cannot start because of an error in the software.
Please report this problem as :
load needed DLLs for Kernel.
Please contact your support person to report this problem
This error solution is to perform a top over install, or repair from the Windows XP cd. When I chose all the correct steps to do this, I am not offered a choice of Repair. I can only: (a) Format current NTFS file system (Quick) (b) Format current NTFS file system or (c) Leave current file system intact (no changes)
Any ideas??? You guys are awesome, you've helped me a lot so far into this adventure!
I have a video editing project due tomorrow, so this is detrimental in the success. I have almost completed it when I got the first "a disc read error has occurred. Press Ctr Alt Del to restart your computer" 14 hours ago.
