Error loading operating system

I installed new mobo, 2 GB ddr3 RAM, CPU, and psu per recommendations from you guys earlier this week ( and got error loading operating system.

Since it was a hard drive from an earlier build I reformated it, installed XP and for the first restart on the installation it got the error. I update BIOS and ran chkdsk to fix the 1 error it found.

The HD is IDE so I'm thinking it just isn't compatible with this setup. Any other ideas?

Apparently the IDE cable was a 40 and I used an 80 and it worked!
