The problem is that the machine you installed it on doesnt match the machine you want it in. The hardware configuration is different and that is why you get the stop error. You have to install XP on the drive in the machine in order for it to work correctly. Even if you have 2 mahinces with the same identical hardware it wont work like you want. The hardware properties that got installed dont match those of the machine you are using.

Do you have your BIOS on that system to boot from CD? That would be the first thing to check. Is your XP CD Bootable is another question i have to ask. I know that not all of them are.

Well you need to know you mobo manu and your BIOS version in order to flash it. I dont know if that would be the problem. How new/old is the system you are trying to install this on?
