Default Re: Windows help!!! Error message on startup

Here is my sata one Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB Hard Drive - 7200, 16MB, SATA-300.
For the IDE i got it from someone who was working on my old computer.

Ok in installed a floppy drive onto my computer and it loaded. It says some microsoft thing and then A:\> but i tried the command above but that didnt work. I tried just typing A:\hal.dll but it didnt work.

captain i think thats a long way around, the actually easy way is to insert your xp disk and make it boot from xp then go into system recovery and a black ms dos screen appears, press 1 then enter, now type chkdsk /f

so simple it will repair it

I'm not to sure what happened but i left for school and came back and turned it on and got the message saying windows wasn't closed properly last time and the menu came up which i haven't seen before except when i shut my computer off manually. So i click continue or w.e i forget what it said and it just loaded. Not sure how that worked.
Thank you for all your help. I really had no idea what to do.

It's my mixture of telepathy and telekinesis... I made it work for you.
