I gather that you have just loaded XP back on to your computer, and have now put in the SP1 disc to load that, and you are getting the message as your post. If so I would do a system file scan. Go to Start/ Run / type sfc /scannow ( NB there is a space between sfc and / that will check to see if all your system files loaded properly, if it finds an error it will ask you for the XP disc. Alteratively you can put the disc in the drive before you start, click exit then do the sfc.

I Think you should try pc moron's answer first. It looks as if that may solve the problem.
