Unable to log in to windows

By BurningLamp ·
Hello there. Please I need some help
I am working on a Compaq 6710b laptop. While scanning with Kaspersky I saw an error message, saying something like "Insert your Win XP SP 2 CD"-for some reason.
After I did that, the CD buzzed for a little while and the system restarted itself.
Now I can't log in with any account(including Administrator): the system starts to load settings then immediately logs off again to log-in screen.

I've tried the following:
1. Repair Console - cannot load because the hard disk cannot be found.
2. Same issue with trying to re-install XP files without formatting.
3. When I booted with Ubuntu Live CD I can't access the partition (but I can access the HP Restore partition)...

What do I do next? I really need some help...

Thank God I've been able to get into the HDD via Ubuntu and get to the important files.
I still haven't been able to log in...

You can

go into the BIOS and turn off SATA native mode. This will allow you to boot to the Recovery Console.

Better yet, download the SATA drivers you need and slipstream them into an XP CD with NLite. Then you wont need the native mode.
