This is known as no boot at splash screen...
Please try to work through steps in this article to determine the problem...I recommend you run chkdsk from a recovery cd or xp installation cd if you can, to check your hard drive for corruption. (see here and here)
Begin by attemtpting to boot into Last Known Good Configuration or Safe Mode by pressing F8 as it boots up...
Also see here and other helpful articles here.
Another helpful site is here.
If you get windows started, take a look at your Event Viewer and investigate the errors or warning messages reported there.
If you get any stop error codes or other error messages, write back and we'll help you sort it out....
This general startup troubleshooter might help you, and here's a boot troubleshooter.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

    What do you mean the hard drives have been wiped clean? Is windows installed on one of them?

    If you wiped the hard drives, you have to reinstall windows before you can boot into it...

    When you press F8 at boot, what happens? Do you get the OS options?

    Sorry I misunderstood your problem to be a startup error...

    It sounds like a hardware device has a conflict or is missing drivers. See links here, and here especially, and possibly here, here, here,

    There might be something here.

    Are you trying to install an SATA drive into an IDE system? You may want to glance through this list.

    See also articles here and here, and this may uncover something for you...

    Good luck with that...

When booting up my computer it goes to the error page prior to loading windows and asks what mode...regardless of choice it goes to windows logo screen and sits there and wont load...

1. check to see if your pc is compatible with the software. You didn't specify if you are reloading or installing for the first time.
2.You didn't give hard drive capacity or any information about the Pc you are loading Windows on.
You may not have enough capacity on the hard drive to load the full XP
Wndows xp requires about 2 GB of hard drive space then at least 10 GB of space for swap files and operation files.
