You may want to try booting your system from the XP installation CD and try to repair XP from there. NOT reinstall, but repair. If it is a newer system, it should be set up to attempt a boot from the CD drive. If not, when you see the SYSTEM (not XP) startup screen right after you turn your computer on, press F2 and it should take you to the boot menu. From there, you can make your CDROM drive a bootable drive (usually a clickbox or pull-down menu). Make your change, save changes, and continue with the boot process with the XP installation CD in the drive. Try it and see.
