I think the hard drive has no operating system on it or the MBR :Master Boot Record" is corrupt.
Try downloading "Hirens Boot CD" and burn to cd and boot from it.
It has a lot of useful Utilities on it for restoring MBR and formatting and partitioning

    You nned to enable "Boot from Cd in the BIOS.
    When booting computer down the bottom of screen will be what key to press to enter BIOS usually
    the delete key or one of these
    CTRL+ESC or F2
    when in BIOS find the page to change boot options and set to CD/DVD
    then try the boot **** again
    Save as you exit BIOS

    The only other thing I can think of Without being there is
    Are all your hard drive and CD/DVD cables connected correctly
    The stripe on cables go toward the 4 pin power plug and the stripe goes next to the Number 1 pin on the M/board socket
    The Hard drive should be set to master and the CD/DVD if on same cable should be set to slave
    Sorry if this does not fix it I cannot think of anything else

How to remove windows 7 from dual boot configuration with xp


The simplest way is to install the OS you want again Also there are some other way. but if you don't skill of PC, it's difficult to remove it thoroughly. You can find the hidden file "boot.ini" in C:'s root directory. there are some words like this:
[Boot Loader] Timeout=10 Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS (This is the default OS) [Operating Systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /nodetect" multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /nodetect
and the 1, 2 in the () means C:/ and D:/ if they are in the same partition, you have to distinguish which one is you don't want, and remove it here and then removed all the OS files and users directory files.

I have 2 HDD's in my PC - both with Win XP Prop


Boot.ini is correct, but looks default is booting from Disk2 and partition 1 which is your G:\ 500 GB.

Try Copying boot.ini from c:\boot.ini to g:\boot.ini It might help

In your example I see missing "\" after partition(1), may be typing mistake, but in real time can generate error.

You boot.ini looks exactly same in both drive c:\ & G:\

[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="GUY DRIVE XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Note: boot.ini will be hidden and readonly file. You need to unhide the file and remote the read only option and then only you will be able to save the boot.ini file

Hope this helps

MY pc does not start anymore. I have a Seagate hard drive ST380011A. I got the message: The following fail is missingC:/windows rootsystem32hal.dll


<windows root>system32hal.dll. is missing or corrupt. â How to fix it?â The Hal.dll file is the first file that boot.ini tells the system to look for at boot. â Looking at it this way, this error message can be rather misleading. In fact the reason could be a number of things, such as: â The boot.ini file is actually corrupt or damaged, â or it is pointing the Startup to look in the wrong place. The Hal.dll file is located in the System32 directory of your %SystemRoot% which in a default XP setup is:â C:WindowsSystem32.â You can use the Dos boot disk (or NTFS Reader above) to quickly determine if the file is missing.â If it is, then you should extract it from your XP CDrom and place it in its proper location.Boot to your XP CDrom, and then choose 'r' to go to the Recovery Console.â With your XP Cdrom in the drive, issue this command:Expand D:i386hal.dl_ C:Windowssystem32â â (This assumes the CDrom is D and your System Partition is C) â If this does not cure your issue this may be due to issues in your boot.ini file.â â The boot.ini file is actually corrupt or damaged, or it is pointing the Startup to look in the wrong place.

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.

Leave the other drive in; no the other windows will not cause problems cos its not set as boot 'C' drive, you can deletewindoes off the drive or format it within windows.

I don't think that the drivers you installed are the cause of the boot problem it may be the other drive, remove old drive and try again, but make sure in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) it is correctly recognising the new drive.

delete this path:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer

Booting error


What I would do is take the hard drive (1) out of that machine and put into an another pc - xp would be fine. Now go to the root of harddrive (1) and edit the boot.ini file. you will see an entry similar to this ......
[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="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT

All you need to do is make sure you know which disk you're using (c drive is 0 usually) and the partition should be set to 1 for regular installations.

Did you add any drives lately? or make any changes to your OS?

Winxp cannot boot - missing files message


Just make sure you get these files on your computer.
Download hal.dll from here:

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?hal

Place it in windows\system32 folder.

Now go to the drive you have windows installed in (C:/ for example), and then create a new file, name it boot.ini.

Open boot.ini with notepad, and enter this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS /usepmtimer
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Save boot.ini now, and try booting your computer, it should work.

Invalid boot.ini


One of these two methods should fix your problem......... -------------------------- go to run and type in MSCONFIG. Then click on the "Boot.ini" tab. First, make sure if using XP Pro that the following is listed: [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="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect - this is the boot.ini information from XP, straight from the Microsoft Web Site. All the information below [operating systems] should be on one line! If you have a blank boot.ini file, copy and paste this information - if all information is already there, then don't change anything. Next, click the button that says "check all boot paths". You should get back a message stating that everything is good (the computer checks to make sure the boot.ini file is compatible with Microsoft Operating Systems). Next, assuming your computer likes the boot.ini file that is in there (and it should), then click the button that says "set as default". By doing this, you have now created a new (modified) boot.ini file that is a carbon copy of the original. Click apply. You will be prompted to restart. Before doing so, go back to MSCONFIG and in the general tab you will see that "use modified boot.ini" should now be checked. During reboot, you should not get the invalid boot.ini message (at least I didn't). What you will get is a message (after reachign the desktop) stating that you are not using the defaults or something like that and do you wish to go back into MSCONFIG to restore the default settings. Since your new boot.ini file is exactly the same as your original, click no and check the box to hide that irritating message. ------------------------ Or you can try this method.... right click on my computer go to properties then click the advanced tab then cilck settings under start up and recovery under system startup then click edit and paste [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="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect --------------------------------- Peter
