Default Booting problems =(

Just got my system up and running after a motherboard switch..and I'm encountering some errors.

I kept my old hard drive and everything on it.
I'm having troubles booting the XP installed on it. I must be doing something wrong in BIOS because when I save and exit all I get is a black screen. Any ideas?

I have a XP disc that I can reinstall, but how should I do it? (how to delete the XP already on it, or keep both)

I'm still pretty new at custom building...all input is appreciated.

If you can still access the XP disc...
Boot with the CD follow the user friendly questions.
When you get to the part of the partitions, delete all the partitions and create a new partition. Install Windows XP on that new partition.
