First make sure your harddrive set as master . For that you need to check the jumper in the back of harddrive. There is instruction hoe to set it as master. Also make sure both connection connected to harddrive are working fine. Also when you power up the computer press F8 key then you can see safe mode and other menu enter in safe mode. Then go to start menu->run type in run "chkdsk /r" without "" then press enter then press "y" then restart computer then it will fix and recover errors on harddrive. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

some older pc will only recognise a certain amount of hard drive space, you might have to partition it to recognise 2 drives instead of one, if your pc is newer than this, the best way to do this will be to run the drive alongside your old drive as a slave, and use windows to partition it as required, normally when you set windows up, on a new drive it has to be formatted first, i don't know if you get to the stage where you can do this in your windows set up, also, just a question, i gather this is a SATA hard drive? this is another problem i have come across, windows xp does not recognise these drives, they will only recognise IDE type, this sounds more the problem than the first idea, there is a way you can do this it is somewhat long winded, but i have given you a link to read it will explain all the ins and outs of doing this, hope this helps you

Verify either in the system you are using or another computer that the CD is readable. It's possible that the CD is bad/corrupt or not readable. In this case, get another copy of the window xp operating system. But if the CD was able to boot from another system, first try format the hard drive before you now install the windows on it.
