Do a Windows repair by following below steps:

1- Boot up form the CD
2- Windows installer will start loading some files to your hard drive, when it finishes go for "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER" so press ENTER
3- Press F8 to accept the License Agreement
4- Now Windows installer will search for installed Windows OSes on your hard drive and should find yours and lists it at the bottom, highlight it, then press R

Wait for the repair process to finish. I hope this solves your problem.

Windows Xp especially six years ago never had good native sata support. You need to load sata drivers for it to recognize the sata drive.
You need to got to Asus's website and download XP sata drivers for your motherboard. You can try to install them with the sata drive only connected in safe mode and if not with a floppy(if you still use them). Also make sure that you are connecting the sata drive to the correct sata port on the motherboard usually sata 0 or 1.

PC BOOTS HALF WAY


Try booting into safe mode. If it's a driver problem, safe mode will allow you to start Windows with only the bare minimum of hardware and drivers being engaged. To get to safe mode, press the F8 button on your keyboard during the Windows boot process until it takes you to a screen to let you select Normal, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, etc. I would suggest not using anything other than just Safe Mode. From there, uninstall any software or new drivers that you recently installed. Alternatively, you can use the System Restore feature to rollback to a previous restore point.
