Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

You need the Recovery Console or an XP CD. XP Home doesn't have the recovery option but the Pro version does. Are you seeing a blue screen with a Stop Error message and if so, what is that message? We need the numeric 0x0000?? and ANY_WORDS_JOINED_UP by underscores.

Have you tried tapping Function 8 when you power up to see if you can select Safe Mode with Command Prompt from the Advanced Boot menu?
