Might be problematic trying to rectify this giving your machines lack of a Optical Drive and I suspect the actual MBR(master boot record) may be damaged/compromised for example. Hence the non booting issue...
Anyway for let myself know the exact make and modal of your machine and try the below please and let myself know the outcome:-
Reboot into Safe Mode:
How to boot into Safe Mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap the F8 key. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode, do so.
If any problems refer to this tutorial.
In Safe Mode when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears use the Arrow(On the number pad part of the keyboard)keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press the Enter/Return key.

Here is some advice/support for the machine you have:-
Pretty much generic but may prove to be of use if you do not say have the manual for example.
If you are able to get a USB/Optical Drive you can only use the XP Installation CD-ROM that is the same as presently installed version etc:-
i have a win xp disk i can borrow. I have my own xp disk but its xp pro which i believe is different. is that the case or can i use xp pro to do a repair?

Of if that option does not work the System Image you mentioned is a possibility also. Beforehand we could use the USB/Optical Drive to actually boot the machine with via a Boot Disk and that way retrieve anything you wish to save.
