You can boot from the Wndows XP CD, since the dives work without Windows. That may help

i guess u should just reinstall windows then, to do that go into the bios and make sure u have it set to boot off of the cd drive first, put the windows xp disk in then save and exit, it should come up with a message like "press any key to boot off cd" so press enter then just follow the steps and make sure u format before doing this and dont forget to back up your data!
