Can you get into safe mode? if you can I would try to uninstall the driver. Did you notice a popup telling you that the driver wasnt digitally signed? You might try disabling the drives in your bios and then see if windows will boot. If it does boot, that would suggest to me that the driveris not compatible.

If all else fails you can boot from your XP cd and do a repair install. Dont go into the recovery console, but continue as you would for a normal fresh install. Select your XP partition and setup will tell you that there is already an XP there. It will now give you a repair option that will replace the OS system files but leave all your programs and files. The hope is that if there is a driver conflict/compatibility issue, setup will see that and not load those drivers.
