Disable the BIOS's Anti virus. (if it's enabled)

Wipe the XP disc.

Do you have Win98 BOOT Disc? Try and FDSIK the hard drive using this disc then try again with the install of XP.

Also this blue screen does it have a message? If so please post us the exact message.

A Win98 boot disc to use FDSIK to delete data of the HDD then try and install XP of the CD again.
