    see above link for instructions on repairing xp with the config error

    ===========

    above is from page two of this thread

    ==========

    NOTE: if the cd is at sp2 and the pc is at sp3 then the repair might leave some files at the wrong serivice pack level.

    if you can get xp to boot afterwards copy your files and reinstall xp, that would be the best thing and also do a hard drive check with the tools suggested in the above thread.
