I got carried away uninstalling programs and inadvertently uninstalled one of the XP service packs. Now when I restart the computer it just goes to a black screen. The computer will access the CD drive and the floppy drive during startup. I have a DOS disk on a floppy and I purchased a Windows XP System Recovery Disk on CD. When I use the recovery CD, I have the choice to repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console or to set up Windows XP now. When I choose to repair, it gives me this: 1: d:\MiniNT Which Windows installation would you like to log onto? Then I get a prompt d:\MiniNT> I don't know what to do from here. Any ideas? Also, when I choose to setup Windows XP it says it can't find a EULA and that Windows is not installed. Help!
Thank you, thank you!

The first blue screen is what I get but I was following the printed instructions that were packaged with the disk.
