Pakard bell always goes into Recovery

By TynoPrime

  1. I don't have much time, so sorry, but I'll be brief. I needed to recopy a dll to windows, and since I had no disk, I went into the Recovery partition. Before I did anything, a friend phoned and said he had a disk, so there was no need. (I only needed to restore Hal.dll)

    Now, after restoring it from the disk, I can't actually BOOT windows, it always automatically goes into the Recovery console.

    Anyone know a way to stop that happening?

    Thanks.

    Maybe the boot.ini is corrupt/confused? Have you tried altering it to boot the XP partition?
