When you start your computer, you encounter the following error message:
Load needed DLLs for HAL
This error can be caused if you uninstall Diskeeper for Windows NT 3.5x after you upgrade Windows NT 3.5x to Windows NT 4.0.
If you install Windows NT on a FAT partition, start in MS-DOS mode and then replace the affected files (Ntdll.dll, Ntoskrnl.exe, Fastfat.sys, and Ntfs.sys) with the files from the Windows NT CD, or from the service pack, as applicable.
If you installed Windows NT on an NTFS partition, replace the files in one of the following two ways:
When you install Diskeeper for Windows NT 3.51, it replaces the following files: Ntdll.dll, Ntoskrnl.exe, Fastfat.sys, and Ntfs.sys. The original files are renamed with an .org file extension. When you use the uninstall option in Diskeeper, the original files are renamed, replacing the Diskeeper version of these files. When you uninstall Diskeeper for Windows NT 3.51 after you install Windows NT 4.0, the Windows 4.0 version of these files are replaced by the Windows 3.51 version.
To prevent this problem, uninstall Diskeeper before installing Windows NT 4.0.
