"Some error"!

Could be anything.

The specs for that model show it has a SATA drive. XP setup doesn't see SATA unless you load the correct SATA driver during the installation setup or configure the bios so it treats SATA drives as IDE.

Well, that might be the problem, depending on the wording of the error message.
