If you go to location C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386, there is another
copy of the cdrom.sys file. Copy & Paste that one into folder
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers, overwriting the corrupted file.

Also, did you try booting into the DOS prompt and use the C:\Windows>format
c command to reformat drive?
