hal.dll error on Mini 9 XP Pro setup - 03-18-2009, 02:30 AM
I am getting a hal.dll error during setup, when the machine reboots to go into the GUI setup. I am using usb_pre8 to create the bootable USB drive and nlite to cut some of the fat out of XP. From what I have read, its either one of two things, a wrong setting in boot.ini, or there is "dynamic drive overlay" installed on the hard drive.
I have tried a few things on this website, none of it worked. I am redoing my nLite install with fewer things left out, including integrated mini drivers, to see if something different happens. I also left the Dell diag partition intact (the 32 MB one) when I formatted the SSD. Anyone have any ideas?
