Help! Windows Vista BSOD on Startup (no safe mode either)! Nee

I am trying to repair a friend's computer without having to reformat the whole hard drive. The computer is running Windows Vista 32-bit and the system is a Dell Dimension E520.

The problem is the computer gives a BSOD right when the Vista green loading bar starts to show. I tried to run the OS through safe mode (all 3), but it hangs on crcdisk.sys and gives me the BSOD again. After trying for 5 hours, I came to this forum and saw a related article. It involved using xPUD and obtaining a "enum.log" file. I have the file attached.

I know I probably need to get through to System Restore without actually having to start the corrupted OS and obtain an earlier system restore file, but I have no clue how I can do that. Is my thought process correct?

Please HELP!
