If you're attempting to use the recovery partition it could very well be that it is corrupted. Do you have a regular Windows XP OEM CD that you could use to reinstall your OS?

If you can't get it to install from the partition then you're only other choice would be to call your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you the recovery CDs.

Your registry is corrupt.

Boot into Safe Mode and try System Restore.

Try sytem Repair:
