Question about Computers & Internet
Your brand-new disk-drive probably has a SATA interface, whereas Windows XP expects that it has an PATA interface.
Thus, the Windows Installer does _not_ load the device-driver for SATA devices, and therefore "cannot find" your disk-drive.
Reinstall Windows 7 -- it's a much-better Operating System that the long-in-the-tooth Windows XP, and it will include support for all the other devices in your ACER that Windows XP will *NOT* support.
