Talking Cant boot after power was cut off during microsoft updates!

ok heres the scenario I rebooted after downloading microsoft updates. (this is for XP by the way) well my copmuters battery died after 3 of the 7 updates were installing. now when I turn on my comp it stops at the screen that says something along the lines...

your power was lost abruptly & information or files may have been corrupted do you want to start your computer in safe mode? or regular?

now whether I push safe mode or to boot regularly it just restarts & goes to the same screen or goes to the bios.

what can I do? what happened? I cant find my og windows disk either to reboot the system

Sounds like your windows got corrupted when your battery.
You are going to need to re-install windows.

next time, don't do windows update or install Service Packs while on battery power.

You cant install Service Packs while on battery anyways, needs to be plugged in.
