Here's the issue I've been having. I had Windows XP installed before, but ended up removing it (I don't remember why). Anyways, when I removed the Windows partition, naturally I did it as one usually would by just using the Boot Camp Assistant. For the past day and a half or so I've been trying to install XP again, but every single time I try, Boot Camp Assistant creates the partition just fine, then I reformat it and the items from the disk copy as the should, but then when it restarts, it immediately gives me the error: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll Please re-install a copy of the above file I'm not sure what to do about this. I've tried multiple times with different disks and options, but none of have worked. It happens regardless of if I install using NTFS or FAT32. I'm out of ideas now, so I figured I'd see if anyone else has had the same issue. I'm currently on a 2.2GHz MacBook with 4GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive. Any ideas/solutions?
