installing laptop hard drive blue screen

I am trying to replace the original 160GB HDD from a Toshiba Satellite L355-S7905 laptop computer with a Western Digital Blue Scorpio 360GB. I am installing XP Pro first as my Vista CD is an upgrade only. (She wants to keep Vista). When booting, the XP CD installs the drivers it normally does, but gives me the BSOD just after starting Windows message appears. The HDD is correctly installed and appears in BIOS correctly. I have had issues with SATA drives in the past and am wondering if I may be missing something obvious here? Do I need to slip in the Toshiba drivers into the XP CD first or is there something simpler I am missing?
