Did you restart the procedure after replacing just one hive?

Let's see if we can run a Repair installation using the XP cd. First I need to know the make and model number of your machine so I can determine if you will have that option with the cd.

Dell cd's do offer the repair option.

REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.

You want to select C: Partition2 and press "Enter". That's your system drive.

It's good to see it listed...there's a good chance this will get you up and running.
