Xw 8200 workstation no work, red light and beeping

I have an HP xw 8200 workstation. When I push start It looks normal for about 3-5 seconds then I get a red power light, and a beeping can be heard. This system is a few years old and I just got it from my employer that just upgraded. Does this prob sound like a bad power supply? Or my SCSI Controller? Also the monitor act like its not connected, as well as the key board. The system had a wipe performed before I got it, so I even tried to boot from a xp os disk, still no work. However, it did try to read the disk but acts like it cant read it.
All fans are working, all conectors seem to be connected and it looks like everything is still in the cpu. The disk works in my other computers.
All my other computers are IDE so swaping parts won’t work accept power supply which depending on what you suggest was my next step.

HP xw 4400 will not recognize my hard drive when trying to install OS Windows XP Prof.

Windows XP had a hard time recognizing hard drives larger than 127 GB. The best solution is to install Windows XP with service pack 2 or 3 already slipstreamed. Otherwise, you are going to have to partition your hard drive with at least 1 partition of 127 GB or smaller.
