Widows XP Pro Boot Up Failure

  redflash 19:21 31 Aug 05

Hi , I have installed another Windows XP O/S on a 2nd Hard Drive (partitioned).
I am now unable to boot up to that system - I receive a message "Windows root\system32\hal.dll. is missing or corrupted please reinstall"
I have tried several actions including Windows Repair and a fresh installation but continue to receive the same message.
Can anybody help plse

no you cannot boot up It is a fact that 2 HDDs or partitions cannot run together on some types of HDD Maxtor is one I am familiar with. You set the master HDD to master with the little jumper. you totally remove the 2nd HDD jumper so that the 2nd Hdd becomes the slave
Yopu can opoen your partitioon with the O/S on it but it is simply the slave
