got the error when trying to boot with the C: drive (Win 98)? Also, if the drive is empty, then there's nothing there to boot from? How big is the hard drive initially and how much space is left now?
I have WIN 98 loaded in my C drive and WIN XP ( home ) in D drive. Recently I got an error message "Folowing file missing or corrupt"
< WINDOWS ROOT >\SYSTEM 32\hal.dll
On exploring my computer I find that the C drive is empty, all 10 GB of it and FAT 32 is missing. D drive is OK and I am able to use my PC and send this messsge. My C drive contains some useful data and software. Can some one help me to recover the same. An early help is welcome. TKU.
