Bought a 20 gig hard drive on Ebay to upgrade my laptop... It partitions and formats ok ,but during XP install , a message saying "Windows root\system32\hal.dll is missing" appears ... where do I get this file and how do I load it?? Cheers in anticipation..
In exasperation I installed Windows ME ..and it took it no bother... works fine.. but when I tried to upgrade to XP I got the blue screen of death warning about a serious error... I am ending this posting as I think this hard drive is dodgy.. says 20 gig on label but only shows 10.7 on My Computer Ive started a seperate post .. cheers all
