Why did you replace the hard drive in the first place? Are you sure the drive is compatible with your laptop and that you made up the connections correctly?

Is the new drive being properly identified and configured by the BIOS?

Is the reason you installed a new hard drive because you couldn't access the old one?

What is the capacity of the new hard drive?

If you are attempting to install WinXP on a SATA hard drive you will need to slipstream the SATA controller drivers into the WinXP files and then burn the resulting files onto a CDR.
