I have installed windows xp to my drive successfully but when it reboots to continue the setup my computer does not boot to the drive.  I have tried entering Slitaz to see if gparted could see the drive and it did not show anything except my cdrom.  I have checked and changed the jumper on the drive multiple times.  It shows up in the bios and when installing windows xp it showed the drive to install it.  Everything went okay but on reboot my computer reads "DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER".  I received this computer for free and don't have a setup disk for it.  Confused...

Seems contradictory, IMO...how did you attempt to  install XP without a disk?

 

System manufacturer and model?

Well I was talking about a system restore disk. Sorry. It's a HP Pavillion 533w.  The HDD is a MAXTOR.

I have tried installing ubuntu on it but the net installer gets to retrieving a file and freezes.

I would check the hard drive for possible failure with Sea Tools for DOS. burn the iso and run the diagnostics. It's also possible that Ubuntu would not install because of the age of the computer (2002). Ubuntu needs a system that is PAE. Your computer may be non-PAE. If the diagnostic of the hard drive passes try installing Linux Mint 13 Xfce or Puppy Linux.

Sorry, but your hard drive is failing.  You should purchase a new one.

Yes, you can use the internal hdd from another laptop but the OS will have to be reinstalled unless the laptops are identical. No, the hdd does not have to be brand new. If you have the OS install disk with the key you should be fine.
