    I have the same issue I reformatted the drive in another system and tried installing Win XP, but it will not boot from the CD, I'm thinking its in need of the Sony addition of Win XP that came with the system which I don't have a copy of.

Is the Drive reading any CD/Dvd during windows.

Please check the BIOS priority, if the HDD is set for first boot.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Also clarify the problem in detail.

You can change the boot up order of devices in the BIOS. Go into the BIOS setup then to Boot up order and move the CD/DVD dirve as the first boot device and the hard drive as the 2nd boot device.
Then you boot up with a disc in the CD/DVD drive.

Bsod, error code:0x00000024, hdd problem booting xp os


Can you do this

Boot from the Windows XP CD.
Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.
Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console
Select your OS and enter password (if needed)
When you reach the command prompt type the following and then press Enter:
expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll
Using the expand command as shown above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\windows represents the drive and folder that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.
If you're prompted to overwrite the file, press Y.
Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.

sounds like it's trying to boot to the dead drive- pay attention to the screen when you power on F12 or F1 whatever get's you to boot menu- change the order to exclude the broken drive- it should stop beeping.
