Question about Toshiba A105-S4054 Notebook
I have Toshiba Satellite A105-S4054 with me. I uninstalled windows xp operating system and tried installing the same with the recovery cd. The recovery went on well till the status bar showed 69% completion, after which the system showed an error "10E7160017. Recovery error. Please press ok to turn off the computer". After clicking ok the system rebooted from hard drive and showed the following error "Winnt_rootSystem32Hal.dll missing or corrupt:Please re-install a copy of the above file". I am trapped now. What should i do for installing windows xp now. pls help
Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?
What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??
You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.
Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.
If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.
If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.
