Registered xp now wont work

Hello,I tried to activate XP online, and I thought it worked, but the computer kept counting down the 30-day activation time. After the time was up, I checked and I had no OS!!! Tried to load off same XP cd, and it said there was a problem with the hard drive (at the partition screen stage of installation). What do I do?

    Boot with the CD and load the recovery console. Run Chkdsk /r
    When all done, try to run Windows, if bad, boot from CD and do a Repair.
