Hal.dll is missing.

By pennington.j ·
I know there is a way to do a "dirty install of XP" in order to get the system to boot long enough for me to transfer data to an external hard drive. What happened was, I changed the memory and the file went missing, so the system no longer boots. I put the memory back the way it was, cleared event log in F2 and I just know there is a way to partition. The XP disk will not run. The set up screen comes up and freezes.
I know I can get that data. Someone please respond. I want to create a partition from BIOS-can it be done?

If your install disk won't work

You will either have to,

1. Get a working XP installation CD and do a repair

2. Remove the HD and put it in a USB drive enclosure and pull the data off

3. Remove the HD and put it in a PC and pull the data off you need.
