Failed to successfully scan disks for Windows installations. This error may be caused by a corrupt file system, which would prevent Bootcfg from successfully scanning.
I ran a chkdsk which is successful but I still can not run the bootcfg.

Boot from the CD and go back into the Recovery Console
Attrib –H –R –S C:\Boot.ini
If no go,
Boot with the CD in and go to the Recovery Console:
At the command prompt type the following:
expand D:\i386\hal.dl_ C:\windows\system32\hal.dll
(assuming d: is your cd-rom/dvd-rom)
Type EXIT and remove the CD and restart the PC.

I get a message stating that the parameters are not valid and I tried expand D:\i386\hal.dl_ C:\windows\system32\hal.dll and it says unable to create file hal.dll.
I don't know if this makes a difference or not but I have two OS on my computer (2 partions with the same OS). I tried doing the steps on both but still no luck.
