Infinite reboot loop - recovery console help

Last response: in Windows XP

I am stuck on an infinite reboot loop... with a HP desktop running Windows XP Home Edition

On startup I have...

Windows did not start successfully . . .

with the option to start in the following modes:
Safe Mode
Safe mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command prompt
Last known Good Configuration
Start Windows normally

None of the options will work.

I have a recovery console disk and have tried selecting D:\I386 and doing a chkdsk the result was 'the volume appears to be in good condition and was not checked'.

I am not sure where to go from here. Can anyone help?

Isn't there a choice there to not restart on system failure?

If you select that, XP will crash with a BSOD and give the information of what took it out.
