It might be that you have a bad sector or area on your hard drive that the OS is trying to write to. Someone might be able to give you info on how to check it without an OS installed. I only know Chkdsk.

Maybe. This is such an old OS that i dont remember much about the hwin errors. Try and see if there is a BIOS update that you can flash.
