That, like most things, is relevant. If you don't mind losing all the files that may be saved on the drive, go ahead. It'll only take an hour or so, and it wont hurt. the bsod on boot is usually a bad windows file, so a reinstall is a good bet. If you want to save the files, thats also an easy fix.

Try booting to an XP CD and repairing the Windows files:

If that works, then you don't lose all your data.

Why cant you enter safemode? Can you get to the advanced boot options screen? If you can then try last known good config.
