We prepare lots of computers, which only have in common using Windows XP, having an Intel CPU and being at least Pentium 4, with a long and tedious software configuration.
It's so long, and involves so boring work, that we are just dumping an image from a pre configured machine into every PC, accepting that it will crash on 99% of first boots, and then doing a repair install and fixing whatever is missing after.
Is there anyway we can work around this blue screen and boot that system without having to do a repair install? Is it possible to disable HAL for a boot? Or at least make it detect again the hardware?
