missing HAL.DLL on boot up into WIn ME.

Anyone know where to get this missing dll file from and repair it? It is not possible to get back into WinMe desktop.

Hardware abstraction Layer file ref: dual boot for XP or Win2000 apparently.

Caused by a corrupt Boot.ini file

Think its a format.

Follow the last post but refuse the the "R" option for the recovery consol carry on through the licence aggreement until you are offered the second "R" option but this time it is a repair of your current XP install "remember to highlight select it then continue"

After about 60 mins you should be up and running again
