Windows xp boot failure after installing mandrale 9.1: hal.dll missing
I tried to install linux mandrake on my HD, containing already 2 partitions:
C: 18GB windows me
D: 18 GB windows xp.
I used to launch the os, by choosing it from the first boot menu.
But since I installed Mandrake linux, windows XP was unable to start, and prompts this message before rebooting:
I think that this in in relation with th partition numbre in boot.ini that needs to be changed manually.
Infact, while installing linux, I reduced the c: size to 10 GB, and then automatically partitionned the free space (8 GB) with the mandrake partitionning tool. I got then 3 new linux partitions between c: and d:
My boot.ini looks like:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professionnal" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professionnal" /fastdetect
Any help would be welcomed
