Question ID: 741703
I am currently running on windows 98 and am trying to upgrade to XP Pro. During the upgrade I get the following message: "File missing or corrupt <Windows Root>\system 32\hal.dll. Please reinstall a copy of the above file" I've checked the web for possible solutions and found that the Boot.ini file may need editing. I do not know how to do this or whether this is the answer to my problem. Can anyone help please.

In my experience, it would be a bad idea to upgrade 98 to XP - a clean install would be best. If at all possible, do that, otherwise you'll get errors like these forever.
