How do you remove write protection from a partition running Windows that's missing the hal.dll file and the rest of the partitions are running Linux?

If you are talking about accessing the partition from Linux, the kernel file system driver does not allow writing to NTFS partitions. You can write to the partition in Linux if you install the NTFS-3G file system. This is the only form of "write-protection" that should be on your system.
