You did not boot the drive in your friends pc, correct?

Unless it was booted in that pc drivers would never be installed. More likely a file transfer from the friends pc to your hard drive included more then you wanted.

You need to scan for virus's and malware.

You would also want to capture the stop error and look it up on the web for details of a solution.

All else fails a repair install should fix the issue.

PS your english and grammer are better than some of the english speaking people's posts here.

let's make sure we are saying the same thing.

Putting a OS drive in a pc and booting it will make xp install drivers to support the newly detected hardware.
Putting a OS drive in a pc and booting the system, but not off that drive, will not result in drivers being loaded.

Which is it?

If drivers were loaded you will need to do a repair reinstall of xp because you don't know what drivers were overwritten or added or what registry entries were changed to use the new drivers.

:(...CHKDSK is working..65%..drive looks really f---ed up..maybe some boom(I dont know the verb :D)..but i had it covered with three layers of soft wool..

So again..I connected my HDD to his PC

We have loaded XP from MY disc.
MY XP loaded drivers for his hardware.
We turned off my XP and loaded his XP from his HDD.

Came home,XP won't start.

a repair install leaves your apps/data intact just redoes the system. Only big pain is you have to do all the ms updates again.

Yep letting it boot in the other pc was a major mistake I know you won't do again :-)
