I just disconnected the 1Tb and then started it back up. And now it loaded from the disk but its starting the OS installation all over again.
Im going to let it run through and see if it works this time.

Next I would get the reformatting software from the maker of the drive and run the recertify program. It takes a good while to do what all it does. But time well spent. If you have some bad sectors or clusters it will flag them as bad and an OS install will go around them.
It sounds like to me the boot sector on the drive is bad.
Yeah, I was kind of thinking something with the disk drive might be off.
I was thinking about taking the disk drive from my brothers computer and seeing if that worked.
Well after disconnecting the 1Tb the XP installation so far has gone further than it did before. So hopefully ill be able to completely install the OS on the 160Gb and then reinstall my 1Tb/
