Its hard to tell just like this without having the computer in hand to check and test the jumpers and connection and all, but quick like this i think it might be a trojan virus that corrupted the boot sectors of the old hard drive, and when you copied the stuff from the old to the new, the virus followed and infected the boot sectors of the new one too. Try to reformat completely using the original windows install disk, and not the system restore/reinstall disk and reinstall windows after the format with the original windows disk again. If I was right, it should boot up OK with a fresh format and reinstall with the real windows CD, then install a virus scan and a spyware scan and scan and clean the old drive completely 2 or 3 times to be sure theres nothing bad left on it, then try to copy the whole disc, but skip the Windows repertory, the Program Files one too and the Documents and settings one also, cause those 3 are the ones most prone to corrupting a fresh install even if there is not any viruses in them. If it does not boot up OK after formating and reinstalling Windows though and says it's unbootable, then either there is a config error in the BIOS of the laptop, or the IDE controller that drives the disk is defective. If it's the BIOS settings, it's gonna be easy enough just changing the settings and won't cost you too much, and if its the IDE controller... then that's another story cause it's integrated in the motherboard like any other computer, so basically another computer will cost less than a new motherboard for a laptop. So if that is the case and the IDE controller is shot, you can still try to use an external USB drive to run the computer but not all computers support booting from the USB though, so before buying a brand new external drive, check the BIOS first to see if it does support USB booting.

Its close to impossible to do without a disk. Best bet is to:
A: borrow a copy of XP from someone you know, and use YOUR cd key when installing.
B: learn how to operate a bit torrent program such as utorrent, navigate yourself over to isohunt and download an image of the operating system that you can then mount to a disk.
Obviously the second method is a whole lot more complex than just borrowing a cd. It also falls into a legal grey area, because not too long ago such activity was highly illegal. Being as Microsoft is no longer offering Windows XP for sale, and assuming your using your own cd key, its no longer such a naughty thing to do.

Are you allowing the computer to boot the cd or are you pressing a button? If your pressing the button then allow the computer to read it when you boot and try running that. If that doesnt work, go into the BIOS and change the settings to boot off the CD instead of the harddrive.

Well this web page has the specs for you laptop:-
From what I've seen, it probably had XP loaded originally.
Now you could try contacting Microsoft for a genuine copy of XP complete with COA. Of see if you can get a copy from a PC shop or even ebay.
I'd be tempted to go down the slightly more adventurous route and download a copy of XUBUNTU. Its a Linux based operating system. A lighter version of the main (Ubuntu) designed for older laptops.
