Whenever there are boot problems I like to run chkdsk on the drive.

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Next thing to try is to boot back into the Recovery Console and try this command:

fixmbr

Does Safe Mode work?

Try again with the Recovery Console but use the fixboot command.

One last command to try:

bootcfg /rebuild

If that doesn't work I think it's time for a Repair Install.
