Follow these steps and ia sure you will be able to boot by yourself:-
1)Change the BIOS boot order so the CD or DVD drive is listed first. Some computers are already configured this way but many are not.
2)If the CD or DVD drive is not first in the boot order, your PC will start "normally" (i.e. boot from your hard drive) without even looking at what might be in your disc drive.
3)Insert your bootable CD or bootable DVD in your disc drive.
4)Restart your computer.
5)Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD or DVD... message.
6)When booting to a Windows setup CD/DVD and many other bootable discs, you may be prompted with a message to press a key to boot to the disc. To boot to the CD or DVD, you'll need to press any key on your keyboard (like the space bar) within the few seconds that the message is on the screen.
7)If you do nothing, your computer will check for boot information on the next boot device in the list in BIOS which will probably be your hard drive.
8)Some bootable CDs and DVDs do not prompt for a key press and will start immediately.
Your computer should now boot from the CD or DVD disc.

Windows XP cannot find filepath

Probably your disk is going..going...gone.
Back up all the data you can as soon as possible. If you have one use a boot cd, like norton utilities boot cd and check the hdd from boot cd.
Alternatively take out the HDD and mount it on a different computer as a slave hd so that you can get out data. After you can format and reinstall windows if HDD is still physically ok.

Even better if you buy an external hard disc caddy enclosure, take out HDD from computer. Put hdd in usb caddy. Connect usb caddy to working computer and take data out.

User data are on C:\Documents And Settings\"name for the user"
