You probably have to overwrite your old version of windows by a reformat of your hard disk.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings..

This is one more reason to always make an image before installing any suspect service packs.

Run a sfc scan to fix corrupted system files, 3-4 times.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Impossible to say whats going on. As you mentioned you used "rt 7 lite" a whole bunch of horrible stuff could be wrong. Impossible to say.

When the taskbar disappears press ctrl + Shift + Esc (will bring up task manager) then under the applications tab click 'New Task...' and type in explorer.exe
