I just wanted to see, if different bootable CD will boot.
It does, means, there is something wrong with your Windows CD.
Where did you get it from?

We will have to create a small 'fix CD' to solve this problem.
Please download RC.ISO and save it somewhere you can find it.
Also download MagicISO and install it.
Start MagicISO. You should see a window informing you about the full version of MagicISO.
In the bottom right select Try It! and the program will open.
Click on File and then on Open and navigate to the RC.ISO file you downloaded. Select it, and click Open.
First, we'll need to add a clean version of userinit.exe to the current RC.ISO
- In the upper right pane, double click on the i386 folder.
- Right click in the upper right pane and select Add Files...
- Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and select userinit.exe
- Then click Open to add userinit.exe to the CD image.
- Click File and select Save As...
- Name the file RCplus and save it somewhere you can find it.
- Put a blank CD-R disk in your CD burner and close the tray. If an AutoPlay window opens, close it.
- Click on Tools and select Burn CD/DVD with ISO.... A window will appear.
- Click on the little folder to the right of CD/DVD Image File then navigate to the newly created RCplus.iso Image file and click Open.
- In the CD/DVD Writing Speed drop-down menu choose the 8X setting.
- Under Format make sure that Mode 1 is selected.
- And finally, click on the Burn it! button to burn RCplus.iso to disk.
Boot to the CD just as you would with a Windows XP disk.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to enter the Recovery Console.
Choose the installation to be repaired by number (usually 1) and press Enter.
When you are asked for the Administrator password, enter the password or leave it blank (default) and press Enter.
At the C:\Windows> prompt, type the following commands pressing Enter after each one. Note: Watch the spaces.D:
copy userinit.exe c:\windows\system32
After putting in the third command, you should receive the message 1 file copied which will indicate that the operation succeeded.
Now take out the CD and reboot your computer to normal mode. Try to log in and it should let you back in.

I looked for the userinit.exe found userinit without the extension is this the same file or should it get edited. When I check it in cmd prompt it shows it as userinit.exe.

The bad news is, it can be fixed only from within Windows and you can't get there.
I'm afraid, without obtaining REAL Windows XP CD, we can't do much.
Ask around, borrowed (but genuine) CD may help us.
