After my Windows XP SP2 installation somehow got corrupted, I attempted to reinstall Windows from the XPsp2 CD. After the setup files were copied from the CD to the disk and the system rebooted, I get the same message, "A DISK READ ERROR OCCURRED. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart"



I've tested the hard disk a few times using the disk utilites, and no errors are found. I've even performed the "write zeros to drive" function. And the error still occurs...I am considering purchasing a new HDD but I am not sure if should, since I've found no trouble to the drive.

If anyone has any ideas to resolve this - please let me know...

Have you tried the Error Scan function of HD Tune? (not the quick scan)
