XP won't install on new hard drive

Post by Carolyne on Tue 27 Apr 2010, 1:13 pm

I have a Dell 2400 and put a larger hard drive in it. My XP home is a purchased version, and when I attempt to install it it goes through the format and preliminary checks and then every file it tells me is damaged after that. It will not install and I have gone through 3 new drives and still cannot get it on. However, I can put these drives in either of my other computers and the program installs fine. Any idea what is going on here?

Did you make sure you formated the drive after the first failed install attempt?
