ok, i have both of my windows xp partitions mounted now, but i need to bring HAL.DLL from one to the other. I used -w as one of the extensions for mount so that it would b read/write mounted, but it wont let me copy past hal.dll from one partition to another. :-P

If I remember correctly NTFS mounted partitons are read-only. Thats something to do with the NTFS support code, I've heard about legal issues concerning NTFS (usual Microsoft!).

This is a solution assuming you have the original CD.
Here goes:

1. Start the Recovery Console. If you do not have the Recovery Console installed, start it from the Windows XP CD. Follow the a. b. c. d. steps to install Recovery Console:

a. Insert the Windows XP CD in your CD drive and restart your computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD.

b. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; you need to choose the repair or recover option by pressing R .

c. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation(s) that you need to access from the recovery console.

d. When your prompted, type the Administrator password.

Once thats started you're at a DOS prompt. Since you read the instructions about choosing installations above you can find the file and copy it to the other install.

If recovery console will only let you select one install use linux to copy the file to floppy, follow the above steps to go to the broke install and copy the file from floppy.

One word of warning, recovery console is NOT DOS! That means it does not support all DOS commands so look at the help option to find out all commands.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried booting to safe mode?

There you might be able to do the copy of your file. F8 while booting , just after bootloader (if you have one). Select safe mode, doesn't matter about support for networks or cds.

Try that and let me know!

Disclaimer from that Linux ntfs page:

"The driver in these modules is read-only."

if you want write support you have to compile the module from the kernel source yourself, and the write support from ntfs is still experimental so its not totally safe.

This is OT but if all u need is the hal.dll file put back into your %systemroot%\system32, copy the hal.dll file to a floppy then boot with xp cd, get in recovery console and do it there. If that doesn't fix your problem boot with winxp cd again then use system repair(press enter to select the option to install, then it'll ask you if you want to repair), it'll redetect all your hardware and reinstall system files, while keeping your original configuration.

He already said that he didn't have the XP CD to hand... but good idea if he did with system repair!
