Hi Guys

MS fix is to boot from win XP home Ed and press R to recover file

but because of error cannot get this option

alt fix is to expand cd-rom:\i386\hal.dl_ drive:\Windows\system32\hal.dll

problem is how do I get to command prompt from win XP cd under ntfs so as to use expand command

do not have a second Hard disk to install boot and copy from is there any way to make a ntfs boot disk with cd rom support

or is there an alt I've missed

at $699 for admin version I think 2nd hdd would be cheaper
tried reinstall win xp .....no joy
only thing I can think of is to repartition and do clean install ...but will lose all data
