Error after Install

Hi,
I had windows 8 release preview on my computer but now i went to install Windows xp pro 32bit. After it went through the copying files to disk to then restarting windows, it says 'A Disk Read Error Occurred Press Alt+Cntrl+Dlt to restart'.
I had then installed it from a different disk 2 times but still same problem then i tried it on a different computer and it worked! Then i put it back into the computer and it said same problem again.
I changed sata cable and same problem.

Please Help Thanks!

Spec:
Amd Athlon 4200+
Msi 7253
2gb Ram

  1. Best answer
    did you delete the partition(s) and created new once during the install process?

    are you using IDE or SATA drives?

    you might have to load the chipset driver (F6) during the installation.
