This is either a problem with the hard drive or CD drive. Most likely the hard drive.

You may need to do a low level format to completely blank the hard drive and remove any type of corruption.

Try a program called Derek's Boot and Nuke (DBAN). You can also try the format option (not the quick one) during the xp install. It will take a bit, but should help.

If that still doesn't work, you may have a bad hard drive.  Try downloading the ultimate boot cd from www.ultimatebootcd.com and running some of the hard drive diagnostics on it.
