Go to Recovery Console and type:

cd system32\config
ren system system.old
ren system.alt systemalt.old
copy c:\windows\repair\system
copy c:\windows\repair\regback\system

pressing enter at the end of each line.

To fix it, boot to recovery console

Where E is the letter of your drive with the CD in it.
E:\i386\copy ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

this should fix it most probably. If it doesn't add another line.
E:\i386\copy pci.sy_ c:\windows\system32\drivers\pci.sys
