I am not sure if you are trying to restore XP, or trying to restore system files from the WD hard drive.
You should try shutting off the windows fire wall, or the norton fire wall, which ever one is turned on, or both, and also shut off norton protection as before. The one or two firewalls can prevent a system file restore.
If it's XP you are trying to restore
unplug the external hard drive, try again, if it still does not work go to an earlier restoration date in XP system restore. Use earlier and earlier dates until you find one that will work.
