Hi

My XP is not working because of the above error. I have tried the following
using the recovewry console, but with no success:
1. Replace the hal.dll from the XP cd. Not able to overide existing file

2. Reconstruct the boot.ini but failed. I think that this is due that I
have a SATA drive.

Please help.

Regards

JCN
