Hi all, I just bought a new laptop with Vista home installed on it. Every thing was great except it would not run my Dreamweaver 8 and I could not get a correctin from Adobe to make the DW work. So I tried shrinking my C: drive and adding a D; drive for XP. No problem. Got the XP installed but could not get the internet to work to get the vistabootpro download. After a few hours, I gave up and re-formatted my new D: drive to get rid of the XP.
Figured I would start again from there. My problem now is that I can not boot the computer at all. It will not boot from Vista or I can not get it to boot from the XP CD even when I change the boot order.
I keep getting the missing hal.dll file error. But I cannot use any of the fixes for that because the computer is just in a cycle of trying to boot and then telling me I am missing the hal.dll file. I cannnot get a prompt or anything I can work with.
I am not sure whether the computer is only looking on the new D: drive for an OS and not the C:drive with Vista.
If anyone could please, please help; you would save my husband a lot of stress having to live with me while I am having a compute problem.
Thank you much,
