Can you boot up in safe mode with command prompt?  (Suspect: perhaps not.)

What brand/model PC?

If you have an XP install disc, you can run a repair install.
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/operatingsystems/ss/instxprepair1.htm

Note that you'll need an XP install disc that's the same Edition & License as what's installed on the computer (e.g. XP Home Edition, OEM license). Check the license sticker on the PC.

Also, you should make sure the XP install disc has SP3 on it. If you have an install disc with an earlier SP (or no SP), you can slipstream SP3 onto it:

Once the repair install is finished, all the MS updates released post SP3 will have to reinstalled. Windows Update will do this automatically.

if the above fails, try this method :
windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:  \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
An easier way is to boot from a Bart PE CD (or UBCD4Win CD) and use the file manager for manipulating files. Here  the procedure :
1. rename c:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM to c:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM.bak
2. Navigate to the System Volume Information folder.
it contains some restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".
The restore points are in  folders starting with "RPx under this folder.
3. In such a folder, locate a Snapshot subfolder. This is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder:  C:\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot
4. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following file to the c:\windows\system32\config folder
 _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
5. Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
6. Exit Bart PE, reboot and test

Use a fairly recent restore point from at least a day or two prior to problem occurring .

** you can add the other hives also with this procedure
