Need more info on the computer.
Store bought or home made?
How much ram?
Size of HD?
Floppy?
Any CD roms?
Do you have a recovery CD or an original XP cd?
How did you attempt the reformat?
Have you backed up your important files? Because if you reformat you will lose everything.

You stated Windows tried to install SP2. Was it a successful install. If so you can always uninstall SP2.
