What is currently happening when you turn on the system - Does it want to continue a setup of the repair function ? Do you have the CD as the 1st boot device instead of the HD ? Can you boot into safe mode ?

yes it wants to continue the setup. and yes the CD is the 1st boot device. i was able to get into safe mode and tried using system restore but whenever the system restarts, i get the BSOD

Get back into Safe Mode, then follow these instructions to edit the boot.ini file.

Note: You will probably have to delete a "setup" entry, and just be left with the single entry to boot the OS, as given in the example.Before changing anything, save the file with a different name so you have a backup in case you make a mistake.
