old drive crashed
installed new drive (Seagate 160GB 7200rpm)
have XP Home Edition installation CD (includes SP2)
get error message that windows cannot start because <windows root>\system32\hal.dll is missing or corrupt, reinstall the file
How do I do that from a new drive???!
I've deleted everything on the drive and will start over with the Seagate Disc Utility in the morning - oh look at the time! I've already been at this for too many hours....... :mad:
Any help appreciated
