If you plug in the HDD in the primary IDE, and the disc drive as slave, you may have to also set the drive as slave in the BIOS.

Make sure you have the drives jumpered correctly. The hard drive at the end of the cable should be set as "master", and the CDROM on the secondary connector should be set as "slave". There should be a diagram on the label of the hard drive and the CDROM positions will probably be stamped on the back of the drive.

OK I've checked everything, jumpers are ok.
This anotherthing i've found out, when I put the cd rom on the EIDE it bios doesn't recognize it, but when i turn the computer on, and start booting from cd, it does boot, when it comes to start windows, a blue screen pops up.
"a problem has been det and windows has been shut down to prevent damage
check for viruses on computer,remove newly installed hard drive or hard drive controler ect ect ect"

I'd say to boot to the XP CD, and go through the entire install process. Since you were having problems, I would guess that what you did get installed is corrupted.

Here's a great guide: Steps to Clean Install XP
