Are the xp disks specific for that computer. The reason I ask is because when you changed the hardrive none of the components on your computer know what to do because you won't have any drivers.
Does your hard drive lights come on? Do you think the computer is trying to access your disk drive

If you can't access the Advanced Boot Options by pressing F8 and System recovery didn't help, I am sure that C drive partition is corrupted or bad which you need to format. But before you format it, you may try with a Windows XP Live CD and boot the system from the CD-rom and Ram as the memory. Windows Live Cd is very effective, you'll be able to see the contents and condition of the partition. This tutorial (with the application) [Click Here] will show you how to make a windows live cd, in your case, Windows XP Live CD, but you'll definitely need a Windows XP Cd to create the Live Cd.
If you could get a Windows xp CD, you may try booting from the XP Cd and check the partition or repair the system, but if the partition's file system has corrupted or become as "Unknown file system" you'll not be able to proceed forward, in that case, you'll need to use a bootable Data Recovery Software to get the data, like EasyRecovery Software.
If you are fortunate, you'll also be able to recover or move the files from the C Drive booting the system from the Live CD, but in most partition issues, this doesn't help.
There are many Free Live CD's online, if you know about Torrents, you can try a search, it's not related to copyright or licensed, Windows Live Cd's are made by users to use the CD for emergency.
Let me know if you need further help.
(Note: Some Corrupted File System couldn't be recovered, means you will be unable to recover the contents and the partition could also become a RAW file system)
Thanks for using FixYa.
