PC Won't boot, POST beep is OK!

I went out today and came back and my PC was stuck at the "Last known good configuration screen". I tried to boot into windows using that setting and nothing happened, my PC Just restarted and the cycle began back to that screen again.

I restarted, POST gave me no errors but i was still unable to get into windows, I put my disk in and attempted to repair my installation and once again it wouldn't load, I got to loading necessary files etc (With the bar at the bottom) then the PC restart after that..

I'm thinking it could be a hard drive issue, I've got a spare old hdd i can try, but before i pull apart my PC i thought id ask here.

I can't even boot into safe mode, every time I try boot from the windows CD my pc restarts just after the "Windows is loading files" screen seen below.
I'm running my PC from a linux live CD in an attempt to recover my music and assignment work, but i cant even see my C: drive.

Sounds like the HD... Install the second drive, change the boot order, and try again, installing to the 2nd drive... If installation is successful, try to access your borked drive...
