    Definately broke.

    Edit: Let me explain my sarcastic comments. Now, not being funny or anything but if you can't be bothered to post in the correct section or to even type the correct error message, why would people go out of their way to help you?

    Did the bios see it at all ever?

    have you plugged the power cable AND the data cable in properly?

    I'd say either the RAM or the CPU if it's crashing at such an early stage of the XP install.

    Check all the connections for the drive and on the ports on the board.

    If you have more than one stick of ram in, then try taking one out and try again - if it is still the same try with only the other stick in.

    Your system isn't overclocked is it?

    What happens if you put the old HD back in and try to install on that ?

    Are you trying to install on a RAID array ?

    The following two MS articles suggest some sort of hardware incompatibility (eg. RAM, PCI card, HD etc.)
