You could try boot from cd, then repair windows that way? I have tried it once but i had a different problem, needless to say it did not work but it might for you.

There are two options:
1: Repair through recovery console.To get to Recovery Console insert the disk into the cd drive and reboot the computer. Setup Windows screen will show up. If it doesn't, enter BIOS and set the cd drive to be first priority boot device.
Let Setup run until three setup options are shown. Choose Recovery Console by pressing R. When asked for XP installation type 1 (assuming you have only one operating system installed). When asked for password type your password or press Enter if you don't have a passwoed. A black DOS-like screen will show up.
At the prompt type chkdsk /r and press Enter. Let the process run to the end.
2: Repair installation of XP. You may use the link in my signature for a GeeksToGo link. I hope you will not have to run the repair because this procedure often ends up with many problems.
