hal.dll missing


I am attempting to boot into Amigo within a fresh install of Windows XP on NTFS.

I ran the install.bat and rebooted.

Amigo came up as a boot option.

When selecting Amigo I got the error that hal.dll is missing in \system32\.

Is it an error in the boot.ini that causes this?

hi there

hal.dll is a file which is responsible fro the environment of the windows oprating system

in ur case i think it has corrupted and it has nothing to do with boot.ini

when i used to get these erros then i reinstalled my windows

but somewhere on this forum i read that if u boot from a winXp cd and go to just the recovery console from there ,and just reboot after u have dropped to ur recovery console,ur corrupted file may be fixed I haven't tried this

regards

That can't be it though.

If I select to boot into windows, windows starts up fine. If I select Amigo if gives me the hal.dll error.

This is on a fresh install of windows xp, for the purpose of testing Amigo.

hi there

the if ur amigo uses a hal.dll that might be corrupted which may be having a difernt copy of hall.dll

Your windows is not hurt, since boot.ini is the only thing touched. Run uninstal.bat and then install.bat again. Should work. Sometimes the grubinstaller doesn't work just right.
