Try this and see if it will help. It seems something is stopping the service and without being able to get into windows to fix it then we will try the recovery console to run the fixes I can suggest.

I suggest you delete the main partition and then reset that partition up. Format using NTFS with a normal format and not Quick Format. Then a fresh install of XP.
Is the OS disk you are using a genuine Microsoft disk or is it a burned copy?

Do you not have a authentic XP or Win 7 installation disk?
Where are the OS disks coming from?
