Without even thinking about the error code or random stuff make sure your installing at least service pack 2 on the disk. otherwise the install will fail over and over, some hardware doesnt support XP before SP2. This happened to me with my eee pc when i had XP on it awhile back. the rest seems unlikely. Especially if it keeps failing at the same point which im betting it is.

i would suggest gettin a new CD of XP pro corp, as it could be a currupt installation which will cause this problem.

First I would suggest removing the jumper on the HD, and trying to reinstall windows. Removing the jumper should default to the cable select setting.

Before running the format/install process, take a soft cloth and some water and clean the disc as good as possible. Try to remove any fingerprints, smudges, and dirt. Use a can of air to blow out the optical drive.

Then start the format/install process.

ditch the old HDD (waaaayyyyy toooooo old - most likely 2mb cache first/second gen 7200rpm = SLOW) and that PSU (wont be able to draw even half the W's then it says) sounds like rubbish to me and make sure during assembly you 1) mounted that motherboard correctly 2) mounted the HSF correctly and 3) wired it correctly

also with newer machines Vista X64 is the way - xp is a dinosaur now, there is no reason to stick to xp

Bad ram can cause such symptoms. Have you run memtest86+ without error?

You download an ISO image and boot from it. Memtest has it's own OS.

First, I would recommend trying a new install of windows.

second, I would try booting with 1 stick of RAM at a time, alternating slots.

I had this problem. This is what I did and it worked for me. Won't hurt to try it.

BSOD while installing XP on newer hardware can sometimes be fixed by making a slipstreamed installation disc with your hardware's proper drivers using nLite (free program). If you have another computer, run nLite and it will ask you to put in your windows CD and it will copy all the files. Then it asks for drivers, which you would need to download from the manufacturers website. Then it will put it all together in a bootable ISO which you burn to CD and voila! XP install with no BSOD.
