How can I start it if I don't have an operating system installed? I'm on my laptop right now and my dekstop is the computer without the operating system.

I got my software from the Microsoft Store, and when I try to start up my computer I get Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows Root>\system32\hal.dll
Please re-install a copy of the above file. Even though I have formatted my hard drive already.

Try to reset the bios settings. Or be sure CD is first in Boot order

I am having this problem, too. This is what is happening. A friend gave me his DELL Inspririon 531 2007 Desktop. It has a pirated copy of 7 ultimate x64 (which I am not sure if this supports 64 bit). Prior to looking into how old the machine was, I was able to install 8.1 64 bit. But it wouldn't allow me to install any drivers from the DELL site. Said that the machine wasn't compatible. So, I tried with Windows 7 32 bit and I am getting this error. I have deleted all partitions, but now, I do not have that option when I choose Custom-advanced. There is no Delete option.

A few times I got the error at 5% other times at over 60%. What can I do to get this to install? It is a legit DVD of windows. Why would it have allowed 8.1 to successfully install now it is doing this? What files are missing? I have tried both deleting the partitions and not deleting. Same result.

Where did you get the disk? How is it burned? It sounds like it's a bad disk.

What OS came with the Dell? Look on the COA sticker. Is the Product Key readable?
