"it still doesn't recognize the hard drive" -- what is "it" here? The
installation kit, or XP after a successful installation? If the latter,
this makes me wonder if there is a computer specific driver issue.

Did you try re-installing using the rescue partition? And did you wipe
that out installing Ubuntu?

It may be worthwhile to get the IBM, or now, Lenovo, XP installation
kit specific to that computer. The last time I bought a set, I think it
was about $40.
