Try setting HD as first to boot in BIOS, then use the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key to boot CD.

Try resetting the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS What is the SATA controller setting in BIOS setup? Do you have the latest BIOS update?

Test your HD using maker's full diag/repair CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities Then from Win7 run Disk Check . Check the cables.

Try creating and formatting XP partition with booted XP CD.
