Default Xp Sp1

Its the Home edition!

I was installing SP1 last night and had a power cut halfway through (home machine so no UPS). Now windows wont load, it gets to a certain point and then reboots over and over!

It seems to be the point just before it asks to select a uaser name or the Windows Logo and moving bar appears after disapearing for a few seconds!

Please Help
