Hack C: from D: ?

My XP on C: drive just crashed last week.
Safe mode doesn't work.
Recovery Console brings up a new error message of it's own.
Last Safe Config? Yeah. Sounds nice. Not this time . . .

So, what I did was install XP on my D: drive, brought my precious files back from the dead via NTFS Undelete -Freeware.
That's fine.
Got my files.

But I still have the problem with the XP on C:

Is there a way I can 'hack' into C: using the D: drive XP?
See, the problem I'm having here is I know the STOP error is telling me it's a software/hardware conflict (0x0A error), but it shuts down before I can access the system and cut off any new software.
(Why Safe Mode doesn't work, is beyond me . . )

My theory is, if I can access it through the D: drive OS, I'll have more of a chance.
Problem is, the Admin folder is 'locked' because I password the [bleep] out of everything. . .

It sounds reasonable and do-able.

Any ideas? Suggestions?
