I'm sorry, can you please re-write the question more clearly?
I didn't understand it, but I'll gladly help you if you will re-write it.

Ok ... This is as plain as I can get !!
I have a new Soyo SY-K7VM 333 v1.0 motherboard
I have 2 new sticks of Kingston 512 PC3200 400MHz memory
I have a new Max Power PL350 power supply
I have a new Maxtor 80 Gig Hard drive
I have a new AMD Sempron 2500+ CPU
I can not install any type of OS
Every time I try, I recieve Win Sys Error messages

I was considering wether or not you had bad media, but have you tried a different cd-rom drive?

Think Ive read somewhere that Microsoft are making their ruling about using their OS on one computer compulsary and by changing the MB/CPU the results adds up to a new computer.
In your case I think the HDD you bought was actually second hand and had WIN XP on it at some stage. Think you may need to try and take it back and ask for a new one in sealed manufacturers packaging.
Im going to try and format my hard drive on another computer and see if this works. Will let you know how I get on.

In this case he can't even get the os to get that far.
