Default Corrupt registry

I have XP Home on a laptop and it will not boot. Gets this errors. I don't have the XP Home DVD, but have another XP SP1 DVD. But when I hit F8 and select 'boot from CD/DVD' it doesn't. Any ideas how to solve this?

STOP: c000021S {Registry file failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file);
\SystemRoot\System32\config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternate,
It is corrupt, absent or not writable,

Also is there a way to get to the BIOS menu? F8 doesn't give that choice.

Thanks.
