1. If you are installing new hard drive to this particular PC 1st you will need to know if the PC's BIOS ( Basic Input/Output System) will allow the drive.
2.If you are trying to install the Operating system to the new drive the requirements for the Operating system have to be met.
that is RAM, available hard drive space and CPU speed.
3. Getting into the BIOS is in the instruction set in the user manual or you will have contact the technical support at the manufactuers site to see if you can install or update the storage components and or software to said PC.
Here the support site address if needed:

Computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error. Even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems Motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail. b> 1: Download a disk read error repair tool,install this error repair tool.

You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.

Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.

Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.

Hi!
Try restarting and on the manufacturers screen start tapping f8. You will then go to the advanced options menu. Choose safe mode. if you are able to go into safe mode without errors then do a system restore and restore it to an earlier date before you had this issue. If in safe mode and you are still getting this kind of issue then it would be best to reinstall the whole operating system but make sure to have your documents and other important data backed up.

Hangs on startup


Try booting in safe mode then run a chkdisk scan to see if it shows errors. To boot in safe mode power the computer completely down...wait a few seconds...when you power it back up keep tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. If done correctly a black advanced boot screen will appear with a choice to boot in safe mode. If you are able to boot in safe mode, it's likely that your hdd isn't the problem. It has to do with something in your startup programs. To disable some unwanted startup items Click Start--> RUN-> in the box type msconfig then click on the tab that says startup and uncheck any unwanted items. Reboot the machine and see if it boots regular.

That's usually a damaged system file or a bad sector on your hdd. I recommend booting of your xp disk go to recovery console once you boot and run chkdsk /p and reboot when done.
