What error do you get if you try to start from the CD

Is the hard disk corrupted, in this case since the Windows is un-enterable?

Try tapping F8 or F5 if it doesn't load to the desktop

Besides, would it be possible to reformat it if I'd take the damaged hard disk and place it as a secondary hard disk?
(example: My friend's computer, computer A cannot access Win XP. My computer IS usable. I add her hard disk as a secondary hard disk and access the boot disk. Will the idea work?)
P/S: I will tell you the result of the Memtest after I got the result...

To correct the problem, the user must boot the computer with a Windows 95 or 98 Startup diskette or another bootable diskette with sys.com on it. Then, at the "A:\>" prompt, type "sys c:" and press "enter." A "System Transferred" prompt should appear and then the user must reboot the computer without the diskette.
I began to have some issues with my Windows XP. So I ran Norton to see if there were any viruses. Up-dated my windows, and rebooted. I rebooted, and from there, things just kept getting worse. now I can't even get windows to start.
I get this error message fter my bios load
Press Ctrl-Alt-Dlt to restart
I tried to reload windows from the CD, but it won't load the setup screen. I changed the boot order, I even downloaded the Windows Floppy to CD-ROM Booster. Same problem.
Press Ctrl-Alt-Dlt to restart
I have tried to just load a fresh copy of windoes on my IDE HDD instead of the SATA HDD, same problem.
Any suggestions would be very helpful.
Where can I get the Startup diskette (on the internet)? Cos the prob's the same (maybe almost)

Windows XP users
Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter "E". This letter may be different on your computer.
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
It may be this though
Or you can get the set up discs here, check to get the set which apply to the version of XP CD you will be using

*To everyone that is reading this thread, if you still <3 your data, I recommend you to use FAT32 as your system... you can use bootable diskette to save it, just like in my case. Tata~
**And one mo thing, thanks, Keith!
