I have not seen this error before, but my guess is that your windows directory is screwed up...boot.ini is being read, and the files within the root seem to be functioning up until the point of failure, when the boot.ini directs you to the windows directory to load windows.

As noted, the only time I have heard this happen is when a directory structure gets crapped up.
If you care to, start the recovery console with your CD and type
command at the prompt. Do you see a WINDOWS FOLDER? PROGRAM FILES?
Just make certain you are running a repair and not new installation.

I didn't have to worry about any saved documents or other files, because, like I said, the hard drive was brand new and I had nothing to lose. So if you think you have this same problem or have the same situation as me, then you'd have say bye to those files that you had in your hard drive if you use my method.
Well Good Luck!
