Default XP Install Freezes while Copying over System Files

I had built my dad a computer and recently I built myself a new one and he took my old one. So he wanted to give his old one to his sister, he had been having problems with it freezing on him so I thought I'd reformat and reinstall windows. The first time I reinstalled windows fine and it froze up and kept freezing every time I tried to install SP2. So I tried reformat again and reinstall and now it freezes everytime it is copying over system files. Different places every time, the furthest I've gotten was 93% yesterday. Also I took out the HD and threw it in my new computer and started installing Windows on it and it went through it fine so the HD seems to be good.
