    I have recently put together a new computer, everything is brand new. After putting it together, I installed Windows XP Home from cd onto a new seagate 160gig UATA HD. Everything goes well, the windows xp installation is completed and I am asked to restart the computer. However, once I restart, as it is booting up the HD, I am confronted with a disk read error, that I must restart the computer (with same results each time). I tried reformatting the HD several times and used the utilities on the seagate disc and installing windows xp over again but I get the same msg regardless of what I do. Please help!!
