Is your WinXP a genuine one? It could be corrupt.

When did you last use this CD to install without any problems?

When you say i tried to install xp on a new hard drive with the same results was that new hard drive on the same computer?

I can't get my WinXP install as well.

in safe mode, can you take a look at the event viewer?
with a fresh install, the info there would provide a great deal of insight.

Does your computer meet the minimum specs for XP?

While in Safe Mode, go to run, and open a command prompt.

Explore out to the CD you're installing from.

Type cd i386, and then press ENTER.

Then you can type winnt32 /checkupgradeonly

The CD you have, is it a Retail Win XP Disc, or only a Upgrade to 98?

It's likely that you'll have to access the hard drive to find the logfiles (that XP makes during in setup) in order to isolate the error.

Here's some links about them:
