    if ME runs the xp should run,on boot hit the F8 key for safe mode see if you can access xp that way
    before you do this make sure video caching and or shadowing is disabled
    in bios
    disable any stop error in bios
    I don't remember if that was onboard video or not
    maybe time for new vid card

    i olsow tried to replace the boot.ini and stuff form a pc that workt no succes at all
    motherboard:asrock type: k7s41gx bios version : 2.30 (newest)

    try using a bootable floppy drive..get ti the DOS and run a debug. delete any partions and create new.. set BIOS settings to factory and then boot through XP and see if it persists. Dont forget to set BIOS to factory defaults
