First of all, you can't install XP on one harddrive, take that hdd out on one system and put it in another and expect it to work.. Just isn't going to happen..

Either you install XP on the system that it will be used in or you boot with the XP cd and run the repair option after you move the hdd back to the proper system..

Either which way, you are basically installing XP all over again so you might as well do it right the first time!!
