Dell computor message on a black screen windows root \system 32\hal.dill what do I do


Use the Bootcfg utility in the Recovery Console to correct the Boot.ini file:
  1. Use the Windows XP CD-ROM to start your computer.
  2. When you receive the message to press R to repair Windows by using the Recovery Console, press the R key.
  3. Select the Windows installation that you want, and then type the administrator password when prompted.
  4. Type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER.
  5. When the Windows installation is located, the following instructions are displayed: Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
    [Type Y in response to this message.]

    Enter Load Identifier:
    [This is the name of the operating system. Type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition.]

    Enter OS Load options:
    [Leave this field blank, and then press ENTER]. After you perform the preceding steps, restart the computer, and then select the first item on the boot menu. This should allow Windows XP to start normally.

    After Windows XP has successfully loaded, the Boot.ini can be modified to remove the incorrect entry.

The is no installation for my driver download so i am unable to install it, is it too outdated?


Hello,
some of the driver files can be installed by right clicking them and selecting install. Other drivers can directly be put into the right operating system folder when a normal installation fails.
What is important before trying the above is to make sure that the driver file you have is compatible with the operating system that you are trying to install it to or that it is at least compatible with the "generation" of operating system. For example, some Vista drivers work with Windows 7 but they will not work with Windows XP.
Providing more information concerning the product for which you try to install the driver and the type of driver file (.exe, .ini , .sys ...) will make it easier for us to help you.
Regards,

Windows 7 conversion windows xp soft wear


I assume you want to go from XP to Win7 which is not supported by Microsoft.
Laplink make an excellent and cheap product called pcmover Upgrade Assistant which does the job brilliantly on either the same PC or moving to another and upgrading to Win7.
http://www.laplink.com/pcmover/
You install it on the XP system and save a small file it generates. Then install Win7 as a custom install (without formatting) and re-install pcmover. Select the file you saved and a couple of minutes later pretty much everything is back under the new system ( afew things may need redoing like some drivers, AV software etc. but it's minimal)
Have used this on a number of conversions from XP and Vista to Win7 and it works great.

Ive just read that DMX is a file type to control stage lighting. I doubt very much windows can open that file type. You must have had software installed to open that type of file or youve downloaded that file type.

How i make a shell pack replacement software like xpize or vista inspirat plz help me....


Hii

well windows XP does not allow you to do that, u need to de-activate the services first which monitors windows system files from getting it changed or modified. The Vista Inspirant or Vistamizer (Google them u wud get the DOWNLOAD LINKS) Both comes with built in deactivator.

While installing XP messages pop's whether to allow the modification of shell files or deny, jus click deny every time when it pops while installing these Vista packs.

NOTE: It is not suggested to change or modify shell files, unless ur very well aware of using such things, it may harm ur OS. Make sure u make a back up before u do so.

Hello, I have 2 Operating Systems in a computer namely Windows XP(SP3) in C:\ & Windows Server 2003 in D:\ . I've deleted the file BOOT.INI accidentaly form X:\ drive(X:\ means all drives like...


Hi,
That's not a virus. Boot.ini is a default file needed for Windows OS to boot.
Fortunately, you can recreate the boot.ini files

This is a sample of the above Boot.ini file with a previous installation of Windows 2000 on a separate partition. [boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

Simple way to add operating system on a separate partition:
At the command prompt, type: bootcfg /copy /d Operating System Description /ID# Where Operating System Description is a text description (e.g. Windows XP Home Edition), and where # specifies the boot entry ID in the operating systems section of the BOOT.INI file from which the copy has to be made.

Demo problem


If you have installed vista as a multiboot sytem, then you can do the below: Otherwise you have to do as tom19511 said:

Uninstall Windows Vista on a multiboot system
Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista. However, you can change the code that starts the operating system (often called the master boot code), and then remove Windows Vista from your multiboot system and return to Windows XP or Windows 2000. You will need your Windows Vista installation disc for this procedure.

Before you begin, back up your programs, files, and settings. Removing Windows Vista is an advanced procedure that could result in losing information stored on your computer. For information about backing up data, search Help and Support for "back up."

1) Insert the Windows Vista installation disc.
2) Click the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. getopencontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3) Type [DVD drive letter]:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force and then press ENTER.
For example, if the DVD drive letter is F, type f:\boot\ bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force.
4) Eject the Windows Vista installation disc.
5) Restart your computer.
Your computer will start in the previous version of Windows that you have installed.
6) Delete Windows Vista files and folders, such as the Program Files, Users, and Windows folders, manually.

Note: You can also remove Windows Vista by reformatting the partition where it is installed, but do this only if that partition is not the boot partition. Reformatting the boot partition might make your computer unable to start.
