No I have a legit copy of xp. Turns out my hard drive was becoming corrupt. I lost the drive. Had to go get another one today. Picked up a SATA 80 GB and had to get a radeon 9600 while I was at it. All better now.

On corporate it will tell you a different serial is required anyway.

Also check your computer for the blaster which affected everyone a while ago, I got it after a reinstall and was in a very similar situation lucky enough I knew about it and had the patch on CD

The other alternative would to display any error codes/messages you get, microsoft would normally give you one on the page if you have errors.
