If your disk is not Service Pack 2 refer to the folder mentioned below.
Go to Start

paste the following command into the Run.. box:rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection C:\Windows\Inf\sr.inf
If the Files Needed dialog box appears, click Browse and point to the i386 folder on the Windows XP CD or to the i386 folder on the hard drive, if it exists. For systems updated with the Service Pack 2 CD or Download from Microsoft, browse to the C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 folder. The retail version of Windows XP (SP2) also contains the latest version of the files needed.
These are the files needed to perform the reinstall:
