Default Can't boot my XP partition

I've been dual-booting Vista 32-bit Home Premium and XP for a while with not problems, until I decided to use AIM again after a long time. It prompted me to install security update 6.5 (which you should not download on Vista), so I did.

Doing so gave me some annoying problems, like not being able to play music and my sidebar CPU meter not working, even after reinstalls. So I do a system restore which was a few hours before the update, and now I can't boot my XP partition. All I get is the white progress bar at the bottom that completes and stops at the end and sits there.

I've searched Google and can't find a solution to the problem. Anyone have any ideas other than reformatting the XP partition? I don't have a problem doing it since nothing is on it other than some games, but I'd rather avoid it if possible.
