Are you able to perform the Repair as described HERE?

If you are able to do this, try to run it on each of your installations. This procedure will also remove any service packs that were released after your operating system was originally installed.

Okay here's what I did. First off my rig was acting a little wierd for about a week. I decided I wanted to boot into safemode to make some adjustments :) don't ask what because I don't remember anyhow I rebooted, it booted up but not into safemode. So I looked around at my settings and thought I would just go ahead and do a repair install. BUT; I forgot I had'nt changed the boot options back to default in the system configuration utility.

I did the repair install but when it came time to reboot the machine it tried to boot itself up into safemode.
As soon as the safemode screen appears: BAM<---"windows setup can not run under safe mode"<---BAM!

I looked around in the forums for a while and nobody seems to have posted a clear yes or no fix.

Here is what I ended up doing. (After about 3 failed fixes posted elsewhere)
I repaired the boot.ini and rebooted. And the repair install was able to complete :)

1. Boot to Windows XP/Pro recovery console (in my case it was Pro)
2. Choose repair option
3. On the command prompt type: bootcfg /rebuild
Press Enter
4. Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All): Y
Press Enter
5. Type: Windows XP Professional
(5a. Type: Windows XP Home Edition )<--Do this one if you have XP Home Edition
Press Enter
Enter OS Load options: /Fastdetect
Press Enter

Reboot Machine

This is what worked for me. Hopefully this helps someone having the same issue.
