Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. You have the windows install cd, can you boot to that? You may need to get into the bios and change to boot order to boot to cd first. Most systems this is done by pressing the del key as you boot up--access the bios and change to cd first, then save changes and exit, reboot to the cd. Then you can try going to start, run and type sfc /scannow. Then remove the cd and try to re-boot in normal mode. If you still have the same problem, put the windows cd back in, boot to it and try running a repair install. See the guide at
