    Installing Windows (xp SP2)

    Hi all,
    I have bought a new hard drive "Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 160GB U100" I have set the drive as master, then I put the Windows CD in and formatted the drive. The windows installation files are copied successfully, but when windows restarts after the files are copied it comes up with the following error:
    Searching for boot Record from Floppy not found
    Searching for boot Record from IDE-0..OK

    and then the following error appears:

    A Disk read error occured
    Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

    If I restart i get the same problem.

    Any ideas what could be wrong?

    Cheers
