Take a look at THIS first and see if it applies..
Also, original XP cd or a copy you or someone made for you?? The reason I ask is because, if the boot sequence is set to the cd-rom first and the XP cd is in the drive, when you reboot you should get an option to boot from the harddrive or boot from the cd-rom even before it hits the boot.ini file of Windows!!

The CD is the original Windows XP home CD, not a copy. Thanks for the link, the explanation of the problem makes all the sense in the world. That's exactly what this virus does, it replicates itself each time I reboot into my root directory and fills it up with files, along with other folders. I will try to boot up from the CD again tonight and follow their recommended procedure using the windows CD. I'll go ahead and return the boot sequence to its original order, however I'm pretty sure I will get that error message again.

1st wht files are required for a proper boot!
-- all these files can be found in this zip file
- just replace them to your first partition - these files reside in the 1st partition if i am right even if that partition aint the root partiton. ....u can replace them using a live CD from linux (eg. [bleep] Small Linux, Knoppix, Linspire etc) or from Windows! or u may also try it by connecting ur HDD to another system!
b4 trying the above i will give u a easier option - i have attached an image file that will make a bootable CD for ur windows - i have done this assuming that ur windows is in the 1st partition, if not i should edit the boot.ini file! hope u can make the best out of it! ...if it dosent work just post a msg!....i have given here *.iso file which i have a doubt abt, i also have a *.nrg file that will work only with nero, if u do have access tp nero plz let me know! .....meanwhile try this and let me know if it worked!
-hope i have been helpful!!

Ok so this means that my original XP cd won't work as a startup disk...I'm hoping my roomate has a burner b/c I can't download anything at work. I'll go ahead and give this a try and report back. As far as "what partition" I'm pretty sure its in the first partition b/c I don't remember making additional ones while setting up windows. I used the NTFS option just as an FYI.
