    Blue screen after installing software
    Hi Anyone,
    I have a PowerBook with the Intel processor running 10.7. I recently, using bootcamp installed XP. After a while it crashed on me. I tried reinstalling and it came up with the error that the HAL.DLL was either corrupt or damaged. No matter what I tried, I kept getting the same message.

    The only option was to reformat the partition and reinstall, I was informed. This I did and still got the same error.

    So I tried to remove that partition, reinstalled OSX. The partition remained. I wanted it off. Then I reformatted (erased) the Hard drive and reinstalled the software.

    Now this is where it becomes interesting!

    Since then I can only reboot in safe mode.
    I have tried all the repairs and verifications and they all report OK.
    But I still get only a blue screen on normal startup.

    Any help to sort this will be gratefully received.

    as far as I'm aware, you need to use bootcamp to remove the XP partition.
