Windows XP harddrive

By Cr@zy@ssM@g!c!@n ·
has anyone come across and issue with XP and harddrives. I have had about 10 machines that had to get new drives after i installed xp on them.... I am not sure if this is a known issue but i never had a problem with the machines harddrives till i decided to turn them into xp clients. I have researched microsofts site and have not found a good solution. Can anyone assist me on this issue and show me facts or documents?

What kind of issue are you referring to?
What happens to the hard drives?

they fail. I mean the drives on the machines are fine and after i perform a full install with xp they fail. I get boot sector errors and some done even boot up. I have never seen this issue where the drives fail a little after putting xp on them.Thedrives all range in sizes and manufacturer so i dont think it would be the harddrives...

Could it be the file format you use?
