I am running Windows XP MCE 2005. Yesterday my computer automatically installed updates from windows. A few hours later my computer turned off automatically and restarted and could not run windows due to windows\system32\hal.dll being missing or corrupt.
I have read a series of ways to correct the problem, except... I dont have my windows installation CD for the MCE, and i dont have a floppy drive on my computer, solely a cdrom. I do however have a Windows xp service pack 2 Installation cd. Can i use that instead or will it not work.
Any help with any of these issues would be great! thanks

I am having the same problem with my computer. I can not reload windows xp 2005 mce. I will not go past the set up. I have a Dell 9100 with the upgraded video/sound card. Click me!"]Windows will not load[/post]So far, my hard drive, my mother board have been replace with the same problem reoccuring when I go to load the operating system. It will load windows, go to set up and then goes back to the logo screen and no farther. Do I need to load 3rd party drivers for the raid/sc?? before windows will load. The Techs at Dell say not, but they can't seem to get past this problem after a week of talking to them and replacing most of my hardware.
