My understanding of Microsoft's End User Licence Agreement for OEM versions of XP is that it can only be used on the computer that it originally came installed on and cannot be transferred to another computer.

Yes, but you would still need the SATA drivers for the Hard Drive. Unless you buy an IDE drive, if your motherboard will support it.

Since your hard drive has the "thin red cable" I'd suspect it was a SATA hard drive.
Did you load the SATA drivers when prompted by the Windows installation CD? It's a prompt at the bottom of the screen that says something like "Press F6 to load RAID/SCSI drivers"?
If the SATA drivers for your mobo's controllers aren't loaded, then XP won't be able to recognize the drive in order to install (Vista is a bit easier in this regard). This could be the reason for the Blue Screen of Death.

i could be wrong, but i dont think you should need to change the bios to boot from the cd in order to install windows xp. maybe you should try setting the bios back to the way it was and then put in the cd and try again.

A simple google search should give you them.
