Time to regroup...Go back into the BIOS setup and make sure your boot priority is set as follows: First Boot Device = CD-ROM...Second Boot Device = HDD (IDE 0)...Third Boot Device = Floppy Drive (if you have one) Make sure to save your settings when you exit BIOS.
With the installation cd in the drive...Reboot. If offered the option of more than one OS, choose XP Home and press Enter.
Let me know if your settings in BIOS were set differently than stated above and if changing them has helped.

Go into BIOS, there should be an option to Load default BIOS options, or Load cmos defaults, something along that. Load them, exit BIOS and save. Problem Fixed.

Just to clarify, you went into the BIOS and selected Load optimized settings/defaults, then saved and exited the BIOS? If you did that and it's still doing that we still have a bunch of options left.
1. Boot into the recovery console using the xp cd you have, and try the following comands:
2. Another method I know has very good chances is a low level format. Depending on what brand hard drive you have, (e.g. maxtor, western digital, seagate, etc..) you should download the software to do a low level from there website, and not use a generic one.
