An install of XP is designed to run on 1 PC, not on 2 different ones. Most if not all OS installs are designed to work like that.

When you install the OS in the hardisk using another computer. It saves the data on the motherboard to the disk. So that's why the other PC wont read the OS that has been installed in the hard disk. Unless it has the same specs of the motherboard with the other PC that you've used in installing the OS into the hard disk.

Dear Vanzhyme,

Thanks for replying sir, It may be sir what you have said. Because both the mother board are different. And thank you all of sir.

I've experienced that one too, why don't you try formatting the hard disk on the PC where it belongs. It will work.
