Can you tell us a bit more about the 'IDE is disabled in bios'

Why can't you just enable it in the bios? I presume you connected up the new harddrive before you looked in the bios, it should have been just a straight replacement of hard drive and only needed to alter bios to boot from CD for your install of XP.
