What have you done with the hdd so far. Formatted it and installed Windows?

Have you tried installing the operating system on it?

I've never heard of that message before (\system\system32\hive files\cant read registry) - are you sure that's the correct and entire message?

The registry in XP is made up of a number of separate areas, or "hives". So a message saying a hive cannot read the registry doesn't make sense.
