It looks like your original disc does not include service pack 2. You cannot do a repair if you lack the files to do so (meaning service pack 2). You have 2 options. 1. Start from scratch and do a format and reinstall or 2. You create a new installer CD but with service pack 2 slip streamed into it. There should be articles in google as to how to slip stream service pack 2 with your original installation disk
