    Hi,

    To do the expand command in XP Recovery Console to replace the hal.dll file in the system32 folder in the c: drive, could someone tell me what the drive letter is for the disc drive on a macbook pro, please?

    In the help guides I read it says expand d:\i386\hal.dl_c:\windows\system32\hal.dll

    but it says it can't find that file, so I'm wondering if it should be another letter, not d.

    Thanks,
    NoBob.

    Code:
    expand d:\i386\hal.dl_c:\windows\system32\hal.dll
    Looks like you need a space after that underscore so it should look like

    Code:
    expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll
    You're running the expand command with 2 arguments, the first being the location of the compressed file and the second being where to put the resultant expanded file.

    Thanks.

    In fact I gave that up and just reinstalled XP on a BC formatted 32 GB partition and it worked out okay. But thanks for that. If I get that error any time I'll put in a space.
