Re: cannot fix partion error
It sounds like its overheating or has bad hardware on the mainboard.
Look at the Capacitors ( the cylinderers with flat tops sticking up from the board) They should have flat tops, if there domed or have crud on top, then they have gone bad and the system will eventually quit altogether. get a new mobo. If you say that the Hard drive is proven good, then its the mainboard.

Good day!That error used to be a non compatible with the hardware.I don't know this board,but i'll based my idea on your trouble..Mostly new hardwares today don't accept XP OS..Try to look the Motherboard's features..see if it is compatible with XP..
Ask me if you still don't get what I mean..
You can slipstream the drivers from the floppy into an ISO image of the Windows XP installation CD using a program like nLite. You can then burn the slipstream ISO image into a CD & use it to boot & install Windows XP without the need to use the floppy disk.
You can download nLite at the following link: http://www.nliteos.com/download.html After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.
The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD.
I tried this myself, & it worked without problems. I now no longer need to use the floppy drive when installing Windows XP on my system.
Use the commands FIXBOOT and
FIXMBR in the
"Repair mode" of Windows XP installation or XP Recovery Console for vista Recovery Environment or if you have recovery disk/disc you can use it
That error indicates a partition problem, you need to full format your
harddisk and removing all partion and do a fresh install. Regarding your Win XP CD, just
configure the BIOS to first BOOT to your CDROM
Hi dewasu1803, seems like a hard drive issue. (Unless you received an error message from the system during setup of 2k or XP)? (Also hope its a certified Window CD & not a copy). Here are two ways to get around this. The fastest is to use a software program to clean the hard disk drive. Best software I have come across it Boot & Nuke. Download from this site; http://www.dban.org/download (Darik's Boot and Nuke 1.0.7 ). On the other hand, its suggested you go to the hard disk drives manufactures web site & download their utility software which will allow you to create a bootable floppy disk too. Boot the system to the floppy. If there is an issue with the drive the floppy software will repair it. If there is a problem with either the MBR or FAT it will also fix it. You'll also be able to setup the type of file system, NTFS or FAT32, ECT. If you include the manufacture & model number of the 120GB drive I'll include the web site for downloading.
Power supply can be your issue , when windows boots from CD it a mear dos-mode boot , If it was motherbaord problem it wouldn't boot at all . If you move power supply to test the motherboard issue just make sure it enough power to boot the other motherboard ( some pwer supplies can boot all motherboards )
