Unable to Restore Windows XP on Toshiba Lapto

Microsoft Windows vista home premium - 3...
March 19, 2011 at 00:07:17
Specs: Win XP, 1.43Ghz/1Gig
I have a friends computer, a Toshiba Satellite Pro, with a recovery disk. It will allow me to recover, then when rebooting, the Windows Xp screen comes up with the scrolly thingy, then, zap, BSOD. It wont go into Safe Mode or Command mode, just BSOD.
The code that comes up is 0X0000007B (0xBACCF528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). Says check for viruses and run chkdsk/f .
Cant give any computer specs as I cant get on. And didnt think I would need them anyway just doing a recovery.
I even have a genuine copy of XP, but when trying to install it, it says cant find a hard drive. Maybe that helps.
I have just about given up and have to tell my friend he has no computer. I have many years experience with windows way back to the beginning.

"Cant even get safe mode"
You don't have to, they are boot disks.
