Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
This problem is usually related to hard disk, so you need to double-check the hard disk. You can change the power cable which is connected to the hard disk and make sure it fits. Also check the Ide or Sata cable, if possible replace them. It's best to connect only the drive to be formatted with the Cd rom, I would suggest you to remove any other additional drives if they are also connected. The main problem is with the hard disk no doubt, since you can start formatting, there must be a little mistake. The next step would be the bios. Anyway try this first and let's go to the next step if this doesn't fix. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Your driver cd might be scratched and is the main cause for failure of installation. Wipe it with a very clean smooth cloth. Take care not to rub in a circular pattern

Try to check your cd driver if it is not damage or just clean the cd by wiping a peace of cotton before you insert into the cdrom. If did not also work check the hard disk if they can detected to the BIOS or it could be the hard disk are have a problem, Just try to perform a full format of that hard disk before you continue to install the OS (Operating System).
