Get a bootable windows xp cd first.
Boot the computer and enter the bios. Change the boot priority and make the computer boot through the optical drive. Then save settings and reboot placing the cd in the drive. The computer will boot through cd and show the main menu which allows you to format and install the xp select install and you will be able to do so
According to your problem solution is Copy content of the MS-OFFICE 2007 CD to a Pendrive(Thumb Drive) from other computer having working CD ROM.Then connect thumb drive to your computer install MS-OFFICE through Setup file present in the thumb drive,if it asks product key give the product key printed on MS OFFICE 2007 CD envelope. It solves your problem.
The disk itself may be corrupt , go to microsoft and download xp home or pro , whatever your using and burn to a disk .If you don't have access to another computer , go to a repair shop and you can usually buy a burn't copy of xp for 5 to 10 dollars . RE-install as usual. please note !!! you must know what service pack is needed for the install . SP1 - SP2 ....OR to be on the safe side just get XP SP1. good luck!
Insert the original Windows XP CD (Windows XP with Service Pack 2 is preferred, but not required) and reboot the computer. You may need to configure your computer to boot from the CD-ROM drive.When the Windows XP Setup has started, press "R" to "repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console". Select the Windows installation to repair (generally this is C:\Windows) by typing its number and then pressing ENTER. Type the Administrator password and press ENTER.
Type the following commands:
D: [ENTER] CD I386 [ENTER] EXPAND USERINIT.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 [ENTER] NOTE: If your CD-ROM drive has a different letter assigned to it, enter "X:" instead, where X is the appropriate drive letter.
After entering "EXPAND USERINIT.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" you should see the text "1 file(s) copied", in which case all went well.
Remove the Windows XP CD, type "EXIT" and press ENTER to restart your computer. You should now be able to log on as normally.
