Do you have the win xp disk? Do you have a recovery disk? Did you make a back up while it was working?

Usually a problem with the recovery system not recognising the boot sector on the hard drive.

Wiping the c: drive with a boot floppy or CD of kill disk here allows the recovery operation to work again
