both drives are identical and are ntfs.
Now my prob is ...in trying get in to the drive i must have deleted some files.
I am missing ntldr file ...which i have now put onto a boot.ini disk i made from my laptop.
But now i am showing that hal.dll is missing or corrupt..
This has all been a result of Norton Anitvirus messing stuff up.
If i could reinstall winxp pro onto my empty drive i would be saved...Any thoughts on how to do this..
Or is there a way to rescue what mess i made of the other.
Btw my C: drive is my primary but doesnt contain the operating system...D: drive is second but contains the operating system...this was done previously for a similar switch to clean OS and i swapped the mobo.
