Now when i start my PC i get a option to load linux and windows,
windows works but linux give me a system32/hal.dll is missing or corrupt error.
That's a Windows directory and a Windows file, so it isn't anything from Linux which is missing here. It's probably just a misleading error from a failing Windows boot sequence.

You could download the Grub Live CD and use a menu-guided process to rebuild grub, if you find the manual way too daunting.

You definitely did. Angry Tommy (I think) and I tried to correct something that is not correct in our opinion before a reader decides to accept it as a fact.

No hard feelings.
