1 Disk you create a recovery disk when you fist installed the OS? If so then you can use that to restore your PC to full working mode.

2 If you don’t have a boot disk or recovery disk You might be able to repair the problem from the OS installation CD.

3 Or if you know someone that is running the same OS that you are try and make a Rescue Disk on their PC and then run it on yours
