Okay friends, I tried many possible ways to get my Windows XP boot, which was not booting, I found that the HAL.dll file is corrupted so I now need a copy of this file to replace the same. What I want from you guys is , Who ever is running there computer with Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2 installed please go to your windows drive (where windows is installed, generally its the C: drive) and then navigate to the Windows folder on this drive and then go to the system32 folder , now in this folder navigate to the file HAL.dll , copy this file to a temporary folder (say to your my documents folder) . Connect your computer to the internet and e-mail me the copy of this HAL.dll file in this e-mail id : firstname.lastname@example.org I shall be very greatful to you. Mark the subject line as Windows XP . But be sure you have Windows XP Home Edition With Service Pack 2 installed. For Example go to your C:\Windows\system32\HAL.dll Also note the file version of this HAL.dll file it should be 5.1.2600.2180 I would be very greatful to the guy who sends it to me.
