Xp mode update failed, now XP mode fails to start

Hi all,
My first post so I apologize for not knowing the ropes here yet.
Anyhow, I have an almost new HP dv6 I-7 pro and used windows update in xp mode and now it will not boot in XP, a black dos looking screen pops up and says windows root\system32\hal.dll missing or corrupt. Please re-install a copy of this file.
I see this file in C\win\sys32 . If someone has it, maybe I can re-install it?
If.... that is the right thing to do
