I'd suggest a few diagnostics on your hard drive before proceeding further. The manufacturer of the hard drive should have some free utilities for this (if they don't, there's some others that can be used).
Once the diagnostic is done, then I'd suggest looking further into the recovery options on your system. Somewhere in the programs listed will be a recovery option - which will reboot your system into recovery mode. Let us know the make and model of your system and we can make some suggestions about this.
As for installing XP after Vista - I'd have to guess that you'd have to install it to a separate partition, and then edit the Vista boot record to reflect it's location (but I haven't done it myself).
