|Might try a barts cd and use event viewer logs or see if you can do a Microsoft system restore instead of the OEM system restore. (dunno why they both are called the same)|
Basically you don't seem to be able to access it from the hard drive.
Choices are limited. If you can do a restore point to a time when it worked it would be best. Second might be to try event logs for ideas if a single file is needed. Third might be a "repair: using the xp disk. Last would be to recover files using live cd and then use OEM restore disk.
