As what that image is trying to say, I think you have a problem in your Bootstrap Loader. Without it, your screen will always be like that. There is no other solution for a bootstrap loader to be fixed but a complete reformat and Windows installation. Bootstrap loader is different from the Windows system. Bootstrap loader is a small program that starts the sequence of loading the Operating System or the Windows operating system to the memory for booting. Without it you cannot load Windows.
This is similar to a Boot Manager.
Even if you boot on your bootable Windows XP installer CD, and do a repair, it will do no good. Just reformat the hard drive and reinstall your Windows OS.
