Thinking out loud...if we do the repair, we may end up in the same boat again with the activation problem...
Let's do a fresh install. Press Esc We should then get a screen showing partition information. Once again, you'll have to be my eyes...let me know what you see.
The following list shows the existing partitions and unpartitions space on this computer
use the up+ down arrow keys to select item in the list
to set up windows xp on the selected item in the list press enter
to create a partition in the unpartition space,press c
to delete the selected partition,press d
114440mb disk 0 at Id 0 0n bus 0 on atapi [mbr]
-:partition1 [fat] 39mb < 32 mb free>
c:partition2[ntfs] 114400mb< 92712 mb free>
