I have just bought a new hardrive, I tried to install XP on my computer, but it was having some disk errors. so I put my hardrive on another computer and installed xp perfectly fine, it works and runs fine on that computer. So i brought my hardrive back to the original computer. Now when it gets to the loading bar, the bar freezes and a blue screen flashes once and reboots, and continues to do this. It will not load up on safe mode (safe mode just a whole bunch of cmds pop down and freezes and reboots. Im really bad with computers, so can someone help me?

Hi DeadMetal :thumbsup: to BC. :flowers:

So you can only install xp on the computer that it is intended to be used on because of drivers and such software that is specific to that install. So what exactly happened to the install when you tried it on the intended computer?

Edit: For Spelling
