    If an Upgrade setup fails, you are going to have to settle for an attempt at "last known good configuration, and if no help, maybe a
    system restore from "Safe Mode with Command Prompt", and if not possible, an install to a new folder for windows, with 'taking
    ownership" of the old data.

    Boot and press F8 for the safe mode menu,
    (or)
    install XP to a new folder : run setup CD for XP, "New Instillation" from drop box) Put in Key, and choose the "Advanced Options"
    button to choose the folder,
    (Use "Recovery" disk, if PreInstalled version)
