install of XP home on new 500gb sata drive stops

olack, Dec 2, 7:26am
The drive formatted ok then XP would not install. I changed the sata cable around end for end and the install completed. Should I think the new hard drive was defective or there may be another problem I should look at? I have used the motherboard in another computer and it worked without problems.
