I originally tried to solve a Hal.dll issue and the hard drive was showing the partitions on the Recovery screen but now I cannot enter R or reinstall XP Home Edition because BIOS show no hard drive. Please advise

I suggest you check the hard drive data and power connections. If that doesn't help then a hard drive replacement would be the next item to check. Next after that is a motherboard replacement.

Good Luck
