New drive prompts windows32/config/system message

Installed a new LG DVD/CD writer and when I start Windows (XP Professional) it gives me the cannot start becasue the following file is missing or corrupt: windows32/config/system.

When I take the new drive out and put the old one back in, the PC starts OK. Any suggestions?

One thing - I didn't read all the small print on the new drive box when I bought it and it says tyhe system requirement is 2.4 processor or above. My machine is only 1.6. Is this the problem maybe?

Have you got the jumpers set correctly? ie master/slave or cable select
