It could be the drivers for the SATA are giving you some issues. Either that or the Copy of XP you have doesnt have the correct drivers installed on it so when it tried to load from the drive it freezes since it cant find the hard drive when looking for it.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
