Hi all,i patitioned my hard drive on pc running xp,then installed windows 7 on partition. windows 7 installed ok and was running ok,but when i tried to boot back into xp i had a screen appear saying hal.dll missing,to cut a long story short,I ended up re installing xp. now i have a partition with windows seven on it that i cannot boot into. Would be gratefull on advice on what to do with windows seven partition,how do i remove windows seven from partition. Is there a way of restoring boot option to boot into windows seven and xp,I just want to keep xp safe this time,thanks.
