you need to install windows xp and locate all the hard drive. delete all the partition to get one hard drive. the bsod is probably cause of some sort of bad sector maybe?

So, what do you do about it, panic and try to mount your boot in your computer...... No that is probably not a good idea.
You can boot to the XP cd and when you see the Welcome to setup press the letter R
You will get a dos prompt
Then type "chkdsk /p" without the quotes and hit enter
When that is done type "fixboot" and hit enter
"Y" and enter at the prompt
Then type "exit" and hit enter
The system will now reboot into Windows
If for some reason that don't work for you, you can boot to the recovery console like above and...
Type "chkdsk /r" then enter ** OR chkdsk /p
When done type "exit" and hit enter.
This will take longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.
Spinright and/or norton diskdoctor should help as well.. if you have access to them.
could also be a bad drive. If it isn't WD, I'd test it.
