Hi, this could be your XP disk is damaged or your hard drive isn't set up correctly. For your hard drive, it must be sectioned and formatted before XP can be installed. If you need help with this process, come back to me.
Here could be five various steps you can go about.
Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XP Use
this method for a clean installation of Windows XP. A clean
installation removes all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and
reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and
programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.
Method 2: Upgrade to Windows XP Use this method
if you are upgrading to Windows XP from Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft
Windows Millennium Edition, or Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.
Method 3: Install Windows XP to a new hard disk Use
this method to install Windows XP to a new hard disk. This is typically
done when a new hard disk is installed on your computer.
Method 4: Install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel installation) Use
this method to install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel
installation) to either run two operating systems, or to access,
repair, or retrieve data from a damaged disk.
Method 5: Perform a multiple boot operation Use
this method to install Windows XP as a separate operating system on
your computer. This lets you install more than one operating system on
your computer and select which operating system that you want to use
every time that you start your computer.

Hi niket_shah, sorry but you're board Asus M2N-MX, does support Win XP SP2.
Chances are that while installing windows updates one or more updates failed. People like myself know from repairing PC's which updates need to be installed first. If you're Win XP SP2 did not or would not install than either the Win CD is not a valid Microsoft Win XP SP2 CD or (You have a copy) & there is something wrong with the CD. After a fresh (New install) of Win XP with SP2 there is more than 90+ updates for SP2 which must be downloaded through windows update program. Or you're windows will not function properly.
Just to show you what versions of windows the M2N-MX board does support. Click the link listed below. Once the link loads click the + sign next to Audio. Scroll down the page an notice the different Window version listed for you're board. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-MX&SLanguage=en-us
To recap this issue. The problem is either the WinCD or possibly you're hard drive. Make sure you allow windows to perform a full format before installing window. (Not a quick format).
Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora. If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
you have to find in yor bios the section where to change the fsb and multiplicator factor of the cpu.I had same problem with an athlon 2400++...you have to upgrade it from 100 to 133 or 166 depending the case. its a simple routine work..just find the section in bios...explore it look for this cpu options..I cant tell you exactly where in bios because the bios version is differen from board to board..
and for the second problem you have to make the hard with windows a bootable option you may do this from bios too oor from the cable coneting the hdd with the mainboard...options slave/master.cable select.. however you have to set it like:"boot from...." from the bios
