You need to install your OS onto one of the HDD's.
Although you have XP installed on one of the HDD's, effectively you have a "virgin" PC without an OS as your existing HDD doesn't recognize the new mobo.

As wotbus says , you have totally incorrect motherboard drivers loaded , the OS is looking for the old Motherboard , and when it can't find it , it sits down and gives you a huffy blue screen .

Do a repair installation of XP , and it should load basic M/B drivers , then you can load the proper ones from the disc that came with the board .
