Question about Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook
Recently, my hard drive wouldn't load because a system32 file was
missing so I tried reinstalling my windows vista OS onto the hard
drive. When the installation process gets to the part where the
computer restarts and windows has to load for the first time it says
that "Windows Failed to load because Kernel file is missing, or
corrupt" any ideas on what I should do?
Also, another problem is I just bought a new Seagate 320GB hard drive and it was working great for a week then I turned on my computer with that hard drive in and it says that no internal HDD can be found. I reseated it and everything. Even tried putting it in a freezer for a while to get the disk running and everything. Please help!
Are you talking about two problems on one computer? If so, the first problem doesn't matter until the second one is fixed. If you are talking about two different computers, then the problems can be each addressed.
For the hard drive that is not recognized, where did it come from? If you purchased it used, you may be out of luck. It sounds like you have a pretty good idea how computers work, and it also sounds like this hard drive does not work at all.
If these are both the same computer, then replacing the hard drive with a known working hard drive will most likely provide you with a solution.
I wish I had better news for you.

try pressing f8 when you load vista and then select start normally
if that doest not work and gives you the same error then restart and press F12 as soon as you see the dell logo, put in the vista installation disk that you got with the laptop and select boot with disk option.
try and repair or the recovery option .
NOTE : IT IS RECOMMENDED TO TAKE BACK UP OF YOUR FILES BEFORE USING THE RECOVERY OPTION .
