    Hey Doug, one of the simplest things to try to resolve this is to start with XP's Rebuild command. The short form of the fix is as follows:

    Step 1. Boot from your XP Setup CD and enter the Recovery Console
    Step 2. Enter the command attrib -h -r -s c:\boot.ini
    Step 3. Delete the file (del c:\boot.ini)
    Step 4. Run bootcfg /rebuild
    Step 5. Run fixboot



    If the above doesn't work, then this site may help, if not let us know and we may come up with the answer, http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_haldll_missing.htm

    Before you attempt any of the above, if you can make a backup of your data/work files, just in case.

    Hope this helps.

    May be worth running chkdsk in a in the recovery console command window too - to check the disks integrity.
