Sorry for the question, fire, but it has to be asked. Where did you get that XP CD, is it legit?

That doesn't sound to healthy for a new drive, fire. Did you fdisk and format it before trying to install XP. It doesn't matter if you've installed XP successfully using those disks before or not, fire, are they legit disks?
