i got xp pro and i am trying to put it on an hp pavillion that had win me. it copies the files then when it reboots i get a blue screen that says to check hard drive for virus and to make sure it is a good hard drive. i have used drive scrubber on it so i know there is no virus's and it is a quantum hard drive and went to there site and got a program to do a diagnostic on the hard drive and it passed every test. no bad sectors or anything like that. any idea's?

Boot to the XP cd, remove all partitions and then let XP set them up/format them.
