    Chack the hash sum on your iso... I have downloaded many iso's and many of them has been corrupt files. So a re download could solve some of your troubles

    Hi,

    hal.ddl is the hardware abstraction layer dynamic link library (ouch). If that's gone missing then I too suspect a faulty install medium.
    I'd redownload the ISO file and burn it at lowish speed, say no more than x8.

    Cheers,
