Few things to clarify:
1.What type of formatting did you use?
2.How did you format the hard drives?
3.What do you mean by 'files cannot be loaded'?
4.What disk don't you have? The windows XP CD?

Did you actually delete all existing partitions (from the previous owner) and then attempt to format/partition/install XP?
