Restore Old Windows

Specs: Windows XP, 1GB Ram
My computer received the message STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure} but when I want to do the recovery console, I accidentally installed new windows.

I want to restore to my old windows but I did not leave any restore point to get back.

"I accidentally installed new windows"

How do you accidentally install Windows? There are numerous deliberate steps that have to be taken.

I put the wrong windows cd that doesn't have recovery console. I had the same problem before and managed to solve it but this time I used the latest Windows XP SP 2011 cd and couldn't find recovery console setting and thought if I press enter there would be another option but it continued to install new windows.

I was rush to get the job done. If only there is a way to get my old window back?

All XP discs include the recovery console, all you needed to do was press R. I doubt you're going to get your "old windows" back. It sounds like you overwrote it.
