IF it won't boot from the original CD then there is no problem indicating
any hard drive is bad: The hard drive is not a part of the picture when
booting from an XP CD. It's not even used or referenced for anything at that
Either the BIOS isn't set to boot from the CD, the CD is bad, or the CD
Drive is bad.

Hope you have a backup of your boot disk.
