You had a virus in the restore files.Restoring it brought it back.
Do you get the same error in safe mode?

try to restore your system using system restore
Run --> msconfig --> System Restore...

Find a date back in the past where the system was working. What you can also do to test to see if it's windows with out loosing your files, partition like 10 gb and install windows xp, boot into the partition windows xp and try to burn a disc. If all works we know it's windows what you can try is reinstall your drivers for the driver or do a system restore or reinstall windows, BACKUP first. If it's windows then you can delete the partition 10gb to get back the 10gb for you to use again. If all was working awhile back and you know the date and all the programs you might of installed since then. Go to Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs --> Find all installed since then and remove them.

After booting up samsung NC10 error message saying windows could not start because following file missing/corrupt \windows\system\vgaoem.fon

OK, try, Boot Up in SAFE MODE, press F8 At Boot up, quickly, select, Boot to safe Mode desktop, with networking... simply copy vgaoem.fon file from xp disc or from net, paste file into windows system folder, done.
OR You could simply perform a system restore back to another time BEFORE you had a problem, again start up in Safe mode, F8. but this time when the choice is given to choose safe mode desktop or system restore, choose system restore, when a calendar like thing is displayed choose a time PRIOR to this problem happening, follow instructions and before you know it your PC will be back.

Starting problem

Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

My HP Mini 1000 XP will not restart, it gets stuck on the Windows XP welcome screen

Press F8 during boot this will take you to boot options select "Last Known Good Configuration" or select Safe Mode to perform a system repair.
To repair your system follow the steps below
1. Click Start and open Run on the Start menu.
2. Type (or copy and paste) C:\WINDOWS\system32\restore\rstrui.exe in the Run box.
3. This will open System Restore now select the first option (restore my computer to an earlier time) and click next.
4. Select a date when your network last worked and complete restoration.
Do not worry about selecting the wrong date you can always undo any restore within system restore you will select undo last restore.

Won't boot past Windows XP main screen. Windows XP may have a corrupt file. How do I correct without full recovery?

Try starting in Safe Mode and check if you can start it? In case it starts in Safe Mode, you may do the system restore to the date it was working fine.

Loading PBR for descriptor 2...done

Boot to the Diagnistics FN+POWER at boot, run hard drive diagnostics. The PBR Descriptor 2 message is part of the normal boot process (directing the boot loader to Primary Boot Recond 2, the C: Drive) but usually flashes on an off so fast most people never notice it. Since the boot process is not going past the re-direct it is indicative of a bad hdd (Since the re-image process crashed)
Most likely you are looking at a hard drive replacement.
Regardless you are going to need an XP CD (you'll have to reinstall windows or run recovery console at a minimum)
