Do you have a windows disk? Do you have a directory called i386 anywhere on your drive?
Bad image simply means the file is corrupt

If you have a windows xp cd, start the computer and boot with it and choose recovery console.
Then follow the instructions beginning at STEP 2
If you do not have a Windows XP CD, do the following
download RC.iso from the following link:
You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file
to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another
Windows XP machine, install it.
make certain you download the proper installation for your version of windows. Open MY COMPUTER, choose
HELP > ABOUT. Note the service pack and get the appropriate version of the iso burner power toy
After installation, reboot, then right click the RC.iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO
Then reboot your broken PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.
This will give you a recovery console to use to run
Insert the cd into the non-functioning PC
When boot begins, a windows setup will appear to start, but you will be taken to a recovery console.
You will need to select your windows installation by pressing a number, most likely 1
Windows will ask you for a password
If you have XP home, press enter...there is no password
If you have XP Pro, you need to enter the password you set when you installed your machine with XP Pro.
After entering the password, you will find yourself at a command prompt that looks like this
follow the prompts, then when it is complete, remove the CD,
the machine will reboot
Did that fix it?
If that fails, on a separate machine, download the file attached to this post
Extract it and place it on a floppy disk
Restart the bad machine with the recovery console and place the floppy disk on that machine, then at the recovery console prompt, type
copy scesrv.dll to c:\windows\system32
Remove floppy and recovery console cd and reboot
