You might try booting into Recovery Console and type
 FIXBOOT
and maybe
 FIXMBR
as well

Recovery Console:

Does the boot menu appear?
Can you boot in Windows ME?

If your system hangs when you select Windows XP and you can boot in ME then try:

- Boot XP in safe mode (using F8 on boot)
- Windows should now recognize the new Hard Disk automatically (make sure by looking in the device manager)
- Restart and boot XP normally.

Your easybios application isn't compatible with windows xp, and unfortunately, none are.  ME will allow direct access to the hard disk by other applications, allowing bios extenders (which easybios is) to take control of the disk and act as an interim layer between the hardware and the operating system, this is why ME see's it.  XP however doesn't allow direct hardware access (due to its inherent NT and 2000 routes of security) which means easybios will stopped, when this happens, XP looses sight of the hard disk, which means it looses itself, a vicious circle.  There are a couple of ways around this, but none are nice i'm afraid.

1) stick with ME as its the newest windows operating system that will allow easybios to work.
2) Buy a new motherboard with support for large hard disks, depending on the rest of your PC, this could involve a new processor, ram, sound card, graphics card, network card and modem (depending on how many components are on board and whether new motherboards still support whatever processor you have).
3) Buy EIDE/ATA controller card, this will require a free slot in the back of your PC, is hardware so XP will be friends with it, costs less than a new motherboard and delivers the best balance of cost/functionality.

Hope this helps
