Could not load file such and such doesn't tell me the error and/or file. You should write down exactly what it says.

If both xp and ubuntu wont load, it sounds like you could have a dead (or dying) hard drive. Pick up seatools and run a diagnostic on your drive. I found a bootable version of it somewhere, not sure if it was off of seagate's site, but try googling it if you can't find it there.

I had a similar problem when installing xp to an old 939 rig I built for my mom. Turned out it was a couple of faulty memory slots on the board. So it could also be a problem with your ram. Pick up memtest86 and run a few loops to see if that's the issue.
