Ha! Old OS, old URL; possibly just an old desktop not up to the task of running WinXP.
It's a new BIOS you'd flash your system with, and probably a push between your motherboard's BIOS having an update (you'd go to the mobo's maker's site, e.g. that of ASUS, Gigabyte, Intel, etc.; read the screen-print on the board; to get the update) and telling WinXP to install anyhow using a handy force-install option.
SHUT DOWN COMPUTER AND CLEAR CMOS BY RESETTING JUMPER ON MOTHERBOARD AND THEN RETURN JUMPER TO NORMAL POSITION OR USE RESET BUTTON. UNPLUG ALL HDD SATA CONNECTORS FROM HDD. BOOT COMPUTER TO BIOS. MAKE SURE ENABLE ALL SATA IS ENABLED, PRESS F10 AND EXIT.YOU WANT TO SHUT DOWN AGAIN. NOW REATTACH SATA HDD AND CONNECTORS AND BOOT TO BIOS AGAIN. NOW HIT F10 AND LET COMPUTER RESTART AND LOAD INTO THE OS. LOGON AND CHECK DEVICE MANAGER..SHOULD BE THERE. IF NOT CHECK MOTHER BOARD WEB SITE FOR BIOS UPDATE. IF BIOS UPDATE DOESN'T DO THE TRICK, SHUT DOWN AND DISCONNECT THE IDE DRIVE, UNLESS IT CONTAINS YOUR OS. TRY BOOTING TO BIOS AND CHANGE ORDER OF 1ST BOOT OPTIONS, HIT F10 AND EXIT AND ALLOW COMPUTER TO BOOT TO OS, THEN LOGON, GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND REMOVE IDE AND RESTART, ONLY IF THIS HDD DOES NOT CONTAIN OS. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS, OR INSTALL YOUR OS ON THE SATA HDD.

I would not update the BIOS if you aren't haveing problems. If you use WinXP you should have no problems updating the Hard Drive to the 500GB, If you format the disk using the NTFS File system when you install windows, and it only recognizes 137GB of the 500GB, then update, but you shouldn't have any problems. thanks for any ratings
the ntldr.sys file is used to boot your winxp, this should have got corrupted, or your boot sector in the harddisk should have got corrupted.
what file system was used on your harddisk ( Fat32 or NTFS)
if it is Fat32 then you can try this. boot your system with win98 boot cd or floppy. after booting insert your windows xp cd in the cd drive copy the file ntldr.sys from the i386 folder to the os root dir(usually the c:) you will receive a overwrite message. do the over writing. thats all.
now restart your system normally (harddisk). it should be fine.
if the file system is NTFS, i am sorry to say, if you dont know the admin pass, you will have to repair the installation with the winxp cd,
for this boot your system with the winxp cd, on the first screen, press enter( for a fresh installation), then press F8, now you will be notified that there is already a window installation, on this screen press 'R' to repair the installation. follow the online screen.
Actually this is a nothing but just a reinstall of the OS. you may have to reinstall most of the os updates. and a few softwares also.
