I am trying to dual-boot winxp and freebsd 5.1-stable. I installed the
went through the prescribed routine.
1. Installing windows first.
2. Installing freebsd next.
2. Copy /boot/boot1 to c:\bootsect.bsd
3. add the line
At this point, the windows bootloader gives me a selection menu. I
think it goes 1) for windows 2) for freebsd.
But when I try to boot into bsd, it tells me:
Error: hal.dll is missing or corrupted and won't go any further.
Windows boots just fine. I have tried to reinstall this hal.dll from
the rescue disk that came from the manufaturer.
This does nothing. I have tried to download a hal.dll from some dll
download site. This just confused all of my drivers.
Help me here. This is getting very time-consuming and I unfortunately
can't just get rid of windows.
What the %*$^& am I doing wrong.
