Corrupt or missing hal.dll/ wrong boot.ini wont boot up


Check that you have not left a CD, DVD or USB stick or device plugged in when you are trying to boot as the laptop may be trying to boot from that instead of the correct internal hard drive.
HAL.DLL is for the Hardware Abstract Layer and if this is really missing or corrupt you will need to look for a recovery disk.boot.ini is normally used on such as Windows XP and you should be able to find examples of this file by searching on Google or the Microsoft site.
See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289022 which gives examples of how to edit boot.ini for Windows XP.

Dell Latitude C510/c610 Can this notebook book from the USB Port? I want to install Fedora Linux on my newly repartitioned HD but I can't read the DVD (don't have DVD drive available).


When you want to boot to the USB hard drive just have the drive installed, reboot the system, select the appropriate function key to go to boot options (should tell you what to press in the beginning of boot up) and select USB hard disk.

An important thing to note: Most Linux distributions won't boot from a USB hard drive or thumb drive without a special program for unpacking it to the USB Hard disk. Check with the distribution website for special instructions.

Good Luck,

My Dell Latitude will not boot. it says no hard disk detected.


The first thing to do is go into the bios. To do this, power up the laptop and hit F2 at start up. Sometimes it requires hitting the F2 button numerous times. You should see message in the top right corner that says "Entering Set Up". Once in the bios screen, look through menu to see if your hard drive is recognized by the bios. If it is not recognized by the bios, it may be a defective hard drive or problem with the motherboard. You might also try removing the hard drive and checking for any problems with the connector then reinstalling the hard drive and trying to boot up again. If this does not work, I would recommend replacing the hard drive.

I'm getting a stop error code 0X000000ED,0X86714368, 0X0000006, it's on a Dell Latitude D600 laptop?


Unmountable boot volume indicating that the system cannot successfully read the boot sector of the hard drive.
Run the diagnostics on the hard drive, if it fails, replace the hard drive.
If diags pass, boot to the recovery console, run chkdsk /r If it still gives the error after that, you can try reinstalling windows.
If that fails to resolve, then again, replace the hard disk drive

Dell latitude does not see hard drive


It sounds like your lap top took a fall. try booting into your bios and check your boot order and see if it see your hard drive there. has some one pulled out your hard drive and changed any jumpers?
