Start over. Reinstall XP, preferable do a clean install, including formatting the install partition.

I tried that, and It DID NOT WORK!!!!
It just threw me more errors and crap and every time I fresh install OR repair it just errors out more. I basically have a BRICK!!!(I guess.)

Where did you get the CD you are installing with? Is it a retail copy or something you downloaded and burned? Have you ever installed with it before?

Okay, I got it to install by
1. Booting with Hiren's BootCD
2. Preinstalling NTLDR to HDD
3. Preinstalling WINXP to USB Pendrive with Rufus (comparable to Win2Flash, but better)
4. Running Setup
5. NOT FORMATTING
6. Proceed with a normal fresh install


Also, now I get sh**loads of DRWAT32.EXE opening on boot, filling my memory completely AND filling a
"C:/WINJAVA32/DRWAT32/"
folder with ~100MB copies of DRWAT32.EXE. This fills my HDD and crashes it, but the copies go away after I restart.
I smell MALWARE.....
