  1. Your hard drive has windows XP on it.
    You must load windows 7 on your drive to use windows 7 the OS is not stored on the board.

    It loads xp because that's the OS that was in stalled on the obviosly used hdd. Xp blue screens because it doesn't like booting up on hardware that is different from what it was originally installed on.

  8. Put the windows disc in and restart the PC it should go to the install. If not go into BIOS and set boot priority to your disc drive, save and exit then put the disc in and restart the PC.
    Your going to loose all information on the drive so back up anything you can't replace.
