OK lets start from the beginning, reformated my friends computer due to constant freezing and crashing, however since the reformat we have been unable to succesfully install AND run an OS. Originally we began with Windows 7 RC 64bit and later attempted to install the 32bit version. With both, we constantly had trouble detecting or installing the OS. Tried intalling the drivers but Windows 7 would freeze up. Soo we began playing around with XP after a full reformat it installs correctly but afterwords the computer constantly cannot find the OS, the BIOS can see the hard drive and I have changed the boot device order multiple times yet the problem still persists. Im running out of ideas :(

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar WD5000AAKS
MotherBoard: MSI K9N Neo V3
Video Card: BFG GeForce 8800 GTS
RAM: 2gigs dont know the make
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core

If the master boot record had been corrupted from previous OSes then reformatting won't help.
You have take it one step further, you have to delete the disk partition and create a new one.This will remove the references to old master boot record and the file structure.
