SOURCE: Bad Harddrive
Can you just clarify that you installed XP with the new IDE drive installed in the notebook and that you have selected disc 0 in the bios as IDE and that it is aslo set to boot from that drive?
What you are describing also fits the symptoms of installing XP on a SATA drive without installing SATA drivers first. (XP doesn't install SATA drivers, Vista does.)
So this does sound like a bios setting issue

Typically this is caused by a corrupt windows file which can be caused by a bad disk drive or a software error that has screwed up the disk indexes.
Use your Win7 disk and do a system repair (NOT INSTALL). Often this will clear up any problem.
After that it gets complicated and you probably will need the assistance of a local computer store.
