as i've tried to use the bootcfg /rebuild, it only resulted to having many OS to choose when i try to start windows because i keep on trying. i also noticed that after entering the command, it finds 2 windows installs. on the 1st window install, i said yes then entered the OS loader, blabla. and when i choose this OS on OS selection, i get hal.dll error. but if i said yes to the 2nd windows install, and try it on OS selection, i get another error which long, i think it was hardware problem or boot error.
thus, the 1st windows install found must be the correct one because BEFORE i tried /rebuild on recovery console, when i am immediately directed to the default windows and no OS selection yet, i have this hal.dll error.
So what i'm thinking now is repair but the problem is, when i boot the cd, i have to click ENTER. but after that, i don't receive terms of agreement nor the part where i can click R. I am directed to the part where I can delete partition or install windows on that certain partition.
I think i really have the full package of windows xp CD, coz when i place it on the other computer it reads as VRMPFPP_EN which implies Windows XP SP2 retail full package, right? Or am i using the wrong disk?
i'd also like to add that i use USB to enter windows xp setup because i don't have CD/DVD drive on my acer aspire one. i used this method: http://www.scartech....l-flash-device/
I really don't want to format because i have important files stored in my aspire one in the my documents and some on the desktop.
Thanks a lot.
