m c Posted November 20, 2005 Posted November 20, 2005 I screwed up. Again. Last night, after successfully piecing together my first build I installed windows xp. This morning, I thought I'd try to reinstall and change some settings (I have no idea why I chose to do this considering I have no idea what I'm doing). This is precisely where things went haywire. As the machine boots, I come to a screen that gives me the option to enter Windows XP or Windows XP Setup. Through Windows XP Setup, setup checks the system and then proceeds to ask me if I want to overwrite or start a new folder (other than Windows). I tell it to overwrite. From there it scans the disk and tells me 'Setup cannot copy file: hraidsk1'. If I tell it to skip the file (as my only option to advance) I keep getting the same message but countless other file names. However, if I just try to enter Windows, it tells me, 'Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32hall.dll' It then tells me to 're-install a copy of the above file.' Help. Please. I feel, well, stupid. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
