if so try this...
Turn on your computer and boot with the xp cd in the cd drive...
To start the Recovery Console directly from the Windows XP CD you would do the following:
1. Insert the Windows XP cd in your computer.
2. Restart your computer so you are booting off of the CD....you may have to get into the bios and set it so the cd drive is the first boot device...
3. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears..... press the R button on your keyboard to start the Recovery Console.
Then you will have to press 1 to log into your windows installation and then just press Enter for the Administrator password if you haven't set one....or type in the password and press enter...
Once you are at the command prompt C:\WINDOWS type in
attrib -s -h -r c:\boot.ini press enter
del c:\boot.ini press enter
bootcfg /rebuild press enter
fixboot press enter
type in exit press enter

Last time I tried to skip a file with the SP 2, the system rebooted and I had to reinstall Windows. BTW it is XP home.

Ok. I found the identifier. I went through the entire proceedure you listed but it still just continiously reboots.

YOU NEVER DID ANSWER MY FIRST QUESTION...when you replaced the power supply did you get one of equal wattage or greater than was in there to start with...
did you connect the 4 pin cpu auxiliary power connector...same for the auxiliary power connector for the video card if it had one..
