Windoww root\system32\hal.dll missing by XP

By peg_so ·
I've got 2 Haddisk: the first one is the ME operating system (I've disable this, b'cause of XP). The second one is partitioned and has the XP operating system.
Windows XP couldn't start because of the file 'Window\system32\hal.dll'
I've read this also in
I have try to copy the dll file, but i found out, the XP operating system isnt C it is F
so i try to copy that in 'F:\windows\system32'
but it says: F is not ready to read' I can't see the details of it also.

what can I do? Please can anybody tell me step by step? THanks very very much!

This is the Windows "Hardware Abstraction Layer" file and is specific to the individual computer and its hardware.

1. Access the recovery console
2. Try running bootcfg/ rebuild from the console
3. Try Start>Run>CMD. sfc/sfc.exe with the original Win XP disk in place

The system file checker (sfc) tool scans all protected files to verify their versions and repopulates the %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache folder with correct versions, as described above.

I tried, but something doesn't work..maybe i'm too stupid

The drive is invalid or always not ready to read.

Sorry can you tell me the solution exactly step by step? I'm really bad...!
