Have you tried tapping F8 on startup to get into safe-mode?

pc BIOS setup screen. You specify CDROM as the first drive to boot from.
Insert your Windows XP CD into your CD-ROM drive, and then restart your pc.
When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message is displayed on your
screen, press a key to boot pc from the XP CD.
When you see the following message displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen,
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
At this point an option to press R to enter the Recovery Console is
displayed. Select this option.
NTFS.SYS needs to be at %windir%\system32\drivers [where %windir% =
C:\windows or C:\WINNT ]
You should be able to find NTFS.SYS at %windir%\ServicePackFiles\i386

if your just installing the service pack you should have first installed the hotfix for computers using AMD processors...
If you have an HP computer with a part number that ends with a 'z' you have an AMD-based computer
