Invalid boot.ini, what cd do I need?
I am receiving the invalid boot.ini error message on startup, followed by some .hal file being corrupted or missing, and it tells me to install a copy of that file. After googling for a solution, it seems like the fix is to use a windows xp installation cd, and after a couple steps, reinstall the boot.ini file. Problem is I think I only have my sony recovery CDs, not a windows xp installation cd by name. Is there a difference, or can I use the recovery CDs for this problem without Having to reinstall he entire system? I'm currently looking for the recovery CDs as I seem to have misplaced them, but in the mean time wanted to ask the forum.
