I think if you turn off the System Restore feature you should not get the message anymore. Right click my computer and go to the system restore tab and check the turn off system restore box.

You need to insert the disc you used to install XP with and click on the Retry button in that window to repair Windows, it's broken and needs to repair itself with stuff from the oringal disc that was unsed to install it, turning off System Restore will not have any effect, also this is not a Bootcamp/Parallels message, it's pure Windows XP

This is a multiplatform home !
