I will try to explain this the best way I know how.
My hard drive is failing and this is where the partition disk is with Windows XP Media Center. I have a bootable cd to restore but I can't install Windows with it on a new hard drive.
I replaced the Hard Drive with a new one. A Seagate Barracuda SATA 1 TB
My desktop computer is an HP Pavilion, all specs shown here:

I have a Windows XP Professional CD so I installed that on my new Hard Drive.
Now I have problems with everything it seems. I managed to install the drives for my geforce ethernet to get the Internet running but it hangs every few seconds for about 10 minutes at a time.

I am ready to throw this computer out the window, literally.

If I can manage to boot into the failing hard drive that I used to have, is there a way I can make a ISO cd out of the partition I had there .. and could that install Windows XP Media Center on my new hard drive?
