Loading xp on SSD

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a HP dx2200 and I took the sata drive out and put in a SSD drive.  I am trying to load windows xp on it but am running into an issue.  
1.  I press enter to install xp
2.  Agree to the terms
3.  Create a partition
4.  set up windows xp on the selected item
5.  Format the patition using the ntfs file system
6.  The drive formats, Copys files, Computer reboots, trys to boot from cd, doesn't do anything.  I reboot the pc and get error loading operating system.

Normally the pc reboots and starts install the OS.  Any ideas?
