Is there already a partition on your hard drive?

will your system not boo to the win xp cd?

if not run fdisk from you boot disk(presumably win98) and create a partition for setup to start copying files to and format it. then try again.

if you do not have a win98 boot disk try www.bootdisk.com

ive already set up a partition.
and it used to be WinXP Pro on this computer, i'm using the exact same cd installation
but with new HD, because the old one die.
something weird ive noticed, if i'm disabling the CPU Internal Cache, it's working, but too slow.
another thing, sometimes it won't even recognize the Startup Disk, it says please enter valid system disk, eventhough it is one.
but when i'm disabling the CPU Internal Cache on the BIOS, it's working, what can i do to make it work good and fast like it used to be?

If disabling the CPU Internal Cache solves your problems, your CPU has failed.
The correct solution is to replace the CPU or (depending onthe cost of replacing the CPU) replace the computer.

you might want to try to run a memory diagnostic on it.  I can see a bad memory chip giving you that error.

Good luck,

another thing occur, sometimes, it's not running anything, i mean.. there is power, but nothing is working, but if i'm playing with the power cable, it's being solved, but then from somereason the keyboard is not working.
what do you think cause the problems?
the computer was working 100% 3 days ago, but due to Badsectors i had to switch HD, and now all the problems occur.

geez... it sounds like your power supply is going south and the lack of consistent power is making all your components freak out.  I would try a different power strip, outlet, and power supply if you can get your hands on one.

maybe ill try to relocate the computer, because it was working on another place, maybe the outlet is causing troubles, ill try to switch to another place.

I like Jared Luker's idea.
I'd like to add to it that if you have a UPS handy, that can provide a less hsotile environment in which for you PC's internal power supply to operate.
