I'm trying to install Windows XP on my macbook w/ boot camp, like I've done before, but I'm getting a 'Disk error' now whenever I try. I've reformatted the machine with OSX 10.5 on a Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
Here's how far I get: - Use boot camp to partition the drive, it then says to insert the cd, and I can press a button after the partitioning is done to restart and install. - after the restart occurs, the windows setup begins, and I install, there is a C drive (fat) and an option to install on this drive and leave it as is (or I can format as NTFS at this step), so I install on C as it is - after the install is done the computer restarts, immediately after the restart though I get a 'Disk error' message is DOS at the top left of my screen, directly after 'Press any key to boot from CD.."
After first getting this error I tried installing windows again using a quick NTFS format, but got the same error w/ an addtional message about some missing dll afterwards, so I tried booting into OSX after this and restored the drive w/ boot camp, then tried again, but got the same error once again..
An idea what I can do to resolve this issue?
Here's the error that I get when I format the drive as NTFS, instead of the 'Disk error':
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \system32\hal.dll Please re-install a copy of the above file.
