i had this problem too, check your boot order, put the one that u installed the os onto to boot first. my ide drives were booting before it was getting to my sata drive, changed the order and all was well.

This sounds like what I used to get when the partition I installed to wasnt bootable.

 

When you installed XP, did you have it reformat the partition/drive you were installing to (if you are going to try this MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BACKUPS OF ANYTHING YOU NEED ON THAT PARTITION)? That should handle making it bootable.

 

The fact you dont make it through the first reboot makes it seem like your partition isnt bootable for one reason or another.

no, re-installed windows files but all i get is error loading operating system!!!!!

 

for the love of god why???

 

What version of BIOS are you running? More info on the processor would probably help too.
