Put everything back togather, reboot, go into bios and make sure it selected to auto detect all drives this should take care of the cdrw's as well. if it boots up stating no os you need to reinstall XP or whatever operating system
of your choice

is not detecting the harddrive or the new cd rom and bios is set as auto detect

You should be able to get the hard drive recognized with out reinstalling the OS. Have you tried using a Live Linux CD like Knoppix to see if you can recognize the hard drive? Does it show up in the bios at all?
