Look at the final one for Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation
It uses a slightly different method
Once the inspection is complete, files will start to load from the CD to begin the installation. Eventually the screen shown in Figure 02 will be displayed offering three options. This is the point where the majority of confusion occurs about repairing a current installation. The second option asks if you want to repair an XP installation using Recovery Console.
In some situations this may be the desired course of action, but in this case we want to repair XP without using Recovery Console.
Rather than the second option, select the first option to set up Windows by pressing Enter.

In the meantime, I pulled the hard-drive out of the chassis and it is now in mine. Powered and connected to my last ATA port on my mobo (it's a SATA harddrive, and doesn't have an IDE Ribbon cable port which kinda sucks).
Only problem at this point is that I don't think it's recognized, i.e. not showing up in my computer. How do I fix that?

heres what i had to do. i couldnt get the harddrive working on my good puter so i went back to the bad one. harddrive plugged back in and got back to the error msg.
go to recovery console and follow that first microsoft guide keith gives. now where i had the problem with the system file not existing, it doesn't exist because it had a special extension because when i specified its extention in the copy command, it copied properly and i got into windows... enabling me to continue the guide.
right now im fixing up the internet connection but i successfully did a system restore to sept 29 and am running pretty well.
