Disk Read Error with new install

I have placed a new WD SAT 7200 rpm hard in my PC. I went through the Window XP Pro set up. When the PC boot back up I got Disk Read Error Cntr+ALT+Del to reboot. I placed back my old drive back and
the new one as a second drive. I'm old drive booted right into windows and I can see all the Windows directories from the install on the new drive.

Any help would be appricated,

  2. All,

    The issue was my install Disk to reinstall Windows had gone bad. I have several Dell computers, so I tried another. The issue was I need to reformat the partiction I started with the bad disk before trying the new. Once I figured that out, my reinstall went file. I'm back up and running.

    The tread can be consider closed.
