On a BSOD... (Yes, I have looked on the BSOD fix list, doesn't seem applicable)
STOP: c0000221 Unknown Hard Error \SystemRoot\System32\ntdll.dll
ntdll.dll is in the System32 folder on the C: drive, and appears to be fine.
On inspecting the CD, there's a very small scratch near the edge... but when exploring it using Windows Explorer, I can see ntdll.dll.
The ntdll.dll on the cd is 645KB, and the one on the hard drive is 691KB. I can't overwrite either.
I've checked the error on the MS error database, and the advice it goves is to reinstall Windows... helpful!
I think that when I boot the XP CD it sees that there is XP installed on the computer, and proceeds to boot to XP (the last message before the error is "Setup is loading Windows". How can I force it to start re-installation?
