  1. Both computers have a different chipset. A quick fix is to move the hard disk back to the computer that you used to install XP and use this procedure to fix it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314082/en-us

    You could probably also try a repair install.
  2. I had a similar problem and found out that my IDE ribbon was not pushed in all the way on the motherboard.
