Files copy errors during the XP installation process are often an indication of BAD RAM.
If you have dual RAM modules, try install with 1 memory module installed

Right click on my computer, click on manage. Then on Disk Management. See if the drive shows up . If it does you can format it by right clicking and select format.

This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.
This will be fixing your problem.
Have a great day

SOURCE: How to install new hard drive
External drives have come a long way and run almost as fast as many internal drives. If your need for extra hard drive space is pretty much driven by the Microsoft Flight Simulator game, you could get by with using an external drive. A few things, though: Make sure your system is supporting USB 2.0 (it should be) and that the drive runs at least 5400rpm. External HDD's run off standard 120v AC power.
Otherwise, if you want to get an internal drive, you can certainly get another ATA-133 drive. But SATA is faster and your computer may support it. The D530 CMT (convertible mini-tower) definitely does. But there is also the D530 SFF (small form factor), and D530 USD (ultra slim desktop)--not sure if those are rigged for SATA support.
As for maximum hard disk size supported, that's up to the operating system (e.g. Windows XP vs. Vista). You likely won't need any bios updates because of a new hard drive installation. However, its not a bad idea to review the BIOS update release notes to see what they're addressing.
