Start by booting the system with the Windows XP CD and accessing the Recovery Console..
To use the Fixboot tool, from the Recovery Console command prompt, type in
type in fixmbr
type in chkdsk /f/r
if none of those help...reinstall xp but this time when it asks about formating the drive ..... DO NOT USE THE QUICK FORMAT option.

yep...like I already said...
Im wondering if there is any way to fix this at all, my guess would be there is a Setting in the Settings console that needs to be enabled or disabled,
go into settings...make the cd drive the first boot device.....look in boot order or somewhere in the boot section
if that doesn't work..remove the hard drive and slave it to a working system to see if you can run chkdsk /f/r from that computer
