The regisitry is corrupt. Try booting to 'last known good configuration.' I believe the option shows in the F8 options.

I think you should go to Repair INSTALLATION...not repair console.

To get to repair installation, do not press "r" on the first screen. Instead select, Install Windows XP...then on the screen where it asks you to format your drives, there'll be an option for repair installation...Do that...hope it helps ;)
