Chuck 2: yes also checked that, but it wasn't there, it's a retail copy.
OtheHill:, already have SP2 retail copy, and that is the CD that wouldn't boot.
I found the problem. I forgot that Windows XP does not support AHCI until the drivers are either slipstreamed, or loaded after the controller is turned to compatibility mode in the BIOS. Turned it to IDE compat. mode and XP-SP2 now boots into the install program without a BSOD. Thanks for all the replies, just got to remember to turn the HD controller to IDE mode next time. :)
