1. Try the "Last Known Good Configuration" from the Safe Mode start Options screen.

2. Run the Recovery Console:
A) To run another "CHKDSK" from the XP CD Recovery Console, this time with "CHKDSK /F" to "Fix" errors. Read how-to: How to use the Windows recovery console
Or: B) to Uninstall the Windows Updates that caused the problem:

3. Another option would be to download a live CD (.iso file) to see the hard drive and check, scan, recover, repair, recover the XP serial key, remove Windows Updates or whatever you need/can do with the included tools.

4. Last option would be to repair install Windows XP
