Default Windows XP

About a month ago I installed Windows 2000 Pro on my system and then a problem was created, when I wanted to start with XP it would try to start XP with 2k loader but wont work... so today I got the disk and repaired it, now when I choose to start with XP it'll go to a blank screen then reboot and it does the process over and over....

Help?

FDISK and format it then use the XP cd to install XP.

I don't want to reformat it because I have too many important documents and such on it....
