    have you tried booting from your XP disk and doing a reformat and reinstall? How old is the hard drive in the machine?

    Your HDD seems to be broken... Try to plug in it to any other comp and run scandisk

    Could you please post any code/number and/or filename that is presented in the error. That might help narrow it down a little.
