Thumbs down Unable to upgrade Compaq 7478 to XPSP2

I have a Compaq Presario 7478 and have been unable to upgrade
the OS to XP SP2 from Win98. I have tried dozens of things from
installing on the drive in another computer and upgrading, which
ends up starting with a "NTLDR not found error" when reinstalled
in the Compaq, to wiping the drive and reinstalling 98 and trying
to upgrade to XPSP2.

I have failed in every event.

I have upgraded the BIOS to the latest offered by HP (Compaq).

Any ideas as to what could be the problem?
