Cant install Windows xp on new HDD?

December 25, 2012 6:36:55 PM

I just got a new SATA HDD and Windows XP ( ya im cheap)
And I keep getting the error message about windows shutting down and not working etc.

I tried installing windows on 2 different HDD and same error occurs. I think it may be my BIOS settings but I cant get into the Advanced BIOS settings to fix this issue. I tried downloading the latest BIOS from my manufacturer but im running on Linux atm and cant install it. Any suggestions? Perhaps buying/borrowing a cheap HDD with Windows installed so I can download the latest BIOS settings? Think that will work?
