Windows 7: HELP! TinyXP ruined my Windows 7

HELP! TinyXP ruined my Windows 7

So here's what happened:

I installed Windows 7 and was loving it. My automatic controls class required MATlab, which wasn't windows 7 friendly.

I told the IT department, do what you need to to get MATlab on there..

They installed TinyXP and it worked fine, but on a second partition i have all of my Windows 7 still installed.

Whenever i select Windows 7 from the boot menu it claims that im missing a file (hal.dll IIRC) I tried to repair it through the Windows 7 disc, but no luck..

If anyone could help me out i would appreciate it. Thanks!
