You need reinstall you XP home, and download all update till SP3. After this, copy the files that you recover to your recently XP SP3 installation.

I'm not sure, but from your documents you can't install again XP home. You need a CD,DVD, USB...something with a boot.ini file to start the installation.

I assume that you have the XP home in your HDD, in a folder called XP home or something like this. Just burn the folder in to a CD and boot your PC from this CD.

HDD (Hard Disk Drive). SSD (Solid Stage Disk)
