You forgot to mention the specs for your other dummy system which accepts your OS installation. Seeing how your motherboard has support for OSes latter than XP, does the same issue crop up on the latter revisions?

Your bios may think that your hard drive is AHCI when really it is IDE (or vice versa) Change this in the boot settings in your bios. This was the cause of this issue in the past for me.
