Answers :

The CMOS needs to be set to first read the CD or DVD drive before it reads the Hard drive. Once your XP disk is in the drive it will boot from the CD drive and setup the computer, The CMOS is acessed by turning on the computer and immediatly pressing either the deleat key or the F! or F2 key try each one till you get to CMOS then look for boot section. Set CD drive to first your HD drive to second.
Sounds like you have a bad hard drive what kind is it? (western digital seagate fujitsu??) most manufacturers have a hard drive testing program that you can put on a usb and then boot to the usb to test the hard drive but if you cant format it try to fdisk if that doesnt work its toast sorry 8^(
