I used that no avail. Then I tried doing
when i did option 1
Attrib -H|-R|-S C:\Boot.ini
Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini
it says invalid parameter. I am missing a boot.ini file? Then I try to exit and restart. It says invalid boot.ini file, booting from C:\WINDOWS. Then I get the same error message missing hal.dll file... HELP PLEASE?
Then I try Option 2
"Most likely you will need to expand the file from the CD. The command would be expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll. Substitute d: for the drive letter of your CD. Once you have expanded the file type "exit" to exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer."
I try to expand the file, then it says "The system cannot find the file or directory specified"
