jonsa79 replied to ilko_t's topic in Install Windows from USBWindows could not start because the following file was missing or currupt <Windows Root>\system32\hal.dll Please reinstall a copy of the above file I'm getting this error all the time. I've read the FAQ's and can't seem to understand what I'm doing wrong? I'm trying to install to a notebook that has no problem with formating and reading the first set of files, but when the computer restarts it just gives the error above. Now when I'm trying to install with another USB-stick with other settings it doesn't allow me to format anymore. It keeps giving me this hal.dll error. What can be wrong? Thx!
