Also, could you post make and model of your machine for instance.
Have you made changes to the machine.

Make sure your XP installation CD is not corrupted by trying it on another computer. If the XP CD is good, I would suggest going to the hard drive's manufacturer'r site and download and burn their diagnostic utility. Using the utility you can test the drive and prepare the drive from there. If everything went fine with the test and preparation, run the Windows XP installation.
You might check your XP disk because XP needs SP1 or later to see drives larger than 137 GB (127.5 GiB). If you are trying to install XP onto a drive larger than that with a disk that does not include at least SP1, it won't see the full drive.
