If you have wiped Vista off of your PC and are trying to install XP, then check M/B BIOS for proper configuration for XP installation. XP cannot be installed if you have a SATA hard disk and your M/B is configured as SATA / AHCI operation. You should set it to Compatibility / IDE mode or you should supply SATA drivers during XP installation via a diskette.
