I have a problem with HAL.DLl (missing or corrupt <windows root/system32).
a. I installed XP on a master HD and left the drive with the problem as slave and discover that the C partition was done by PC Angel. I couldnt read the D: partition. The partition C shows the folder MiniNT.
b. I installed Ubuntu (lastest desktop version) on another master HD and the D (slave) partition couldnt load.
c. Using the XP cd and Recovery Console the BOOTCFG /scan gave this error error failed to successfully scan disks. This error may be caused by a corrupt file system &
d. Chkdsk didnt find any problems.
e. I did expand the HAL.DLL file.
e. Diskpart displayed the following :
C: partition1 [fat32]
D: partition2 [unknown]
f. Boot.ini reads the following
multi(0)disks)0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows=Microsoft Windows Xp Professional /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
The only think I didnt do is to repair XP. Do you think the D partition is gone?
