Computer problem gone horribly wronge

Specs: Windows 2000
ok my computer just recently got the blue screen of death. I cant do a system recovery on it because it will not allow me to go any further than blue screen. My computer has two choices on the os menu

Windows xp
Windows 2000 professional

When i click windows xp it goes to the windows xp screen then it goes directly to the blue screen of Death. It allows me to go into windows 2k pro and install but my computer comes up with an message reading error message 7 unable to locate file. I was wondering how to fix that problem. And if i do could i update to win 2k pro and then update back to win xp would that work like that or would the same problem occur

Firstly - not the code on the XP BSOD and post back - it should give an indication as to what's wrong. Secondly, run a disk check on your drive(s) in W2K. - right-click on the drive(s), select Tools/error-checking, and tick the two boxes "automatically fix..." and "scan for....".

Windows will schedule a run of CHKDSK when you reboot into W2K.

Lastly - your XP and W2K must be installed on separate partitions/drives - this IS the case, I trust?
