Default Windows Boot Crash

Hi. I just built a new computer, and everytime I was about to install Windows XP on it, it would get a blue screen. It talked about checking your hard drive. So at first I thought it was the hdd. But I put that into another PC and it worked fine, running XP perfectly. Now when I try to run XP on the original PC, its crashes when it starts to load off the boot.
I'm thinking that my RAM is the problem, even though they are brand new. Its not my power supply either. Any suggestions?

I also cant run MEMTest on it because obviously it doesnt load windows and because my PC that I put the HDD in to test it, only supports DDR and the RAM in the brand new PC is DDR2, and non of my friends have DDR2 mobos either.
