Pushing F2 takes you to the automated recovery. The error you get is because
it can't find your operating system to attempt a recovery. I guess it's too
corrupt. Don't hit F2. Let the disk load up the files it needs until it gets
to set up xp screen. Then follow the prompts. Pick the partition your
previous xp was on, delete and format it and install new xp. Here's a site
with step by step instructions.
