Question about Western Digital Scorpio WD800UE 80 GB Hard Drive
First it was the missing NTDLR file so I replaced the HD. Then I installed Windows XP but now I get the subject message. If I go back I get the NTDLR error. What gives.
You didn't need to replace the hard drive if there is a missing NTLDR file, it just means that the boot sector is missing or corrupt. You can fix it by putting in your WinXP CD, and choosing REPAIR.(This is known as the Recovery Console and it's in DOS just to warn you...) Then you can type the following at the dos prompt: fixmbr - Fixes corrupt master boot record fixboot - Fixes corrupt boot sector bootcfg /rebuild - Fixes corrupt or missing boot.ini

I am going to start with the assumption you have already tried to reboot, then next choices from there go kinda like this...
Run windows XP restore from command prompt. (From
safe ,mode type C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter. If
this doesn't work or you're receiving the hal.dll error message before you're
able to complete this process, move on to the next step.
Replace the boot.ini file (run msconfig) This will
work if the cause of the problem is actually Windows XP's boot.ini file and not
the hal.dll file, which is often times the case.
Note: If repairing the boot.ini does correct the
hal.dll issue but the problem reappears after a reboot and you've
recently installed Internet Explorer 8 in Windows XP, uninstall IE8. In this
specific situation, IE8 could be the root cause of your hal.dll problem.
Right click on c: drive, click
on properties, then tools, click on the error checking button, the put a
checkmark in each box, Click start and it may say it needs to run on next
reboot click OK the reboot. The physical
part of your hard drive that stores any part of the hal.dll file has been
damaged, you're likely to see errors like this.
Run a repair install of
the operating system. This type of installation should replace
any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve
