PC Keeps rebooting after startup

Alright here's our issue. My GF was attempting to install SP 2 for XP pro and interuppted it in the middle by restarting her PC. Now when we try and boot we get the mem test screen, and can enter the bios just fine. It lists the HD's and whatnot but when it goes to load XP it just reboots itself. Doesn't sek the floppy drive or anything. Just reboots. If i go into the bios and keep it there it won't reboot. I'm miffed heh
