Because Windows XP doesn't have support for SATA disks built in. Old wine in new bottles - not a good idea.

Also you may have driver issues installing XP, if you want XP install inside Virtual Machine Software.

Exactly.
Rant:
Windows 7 was released in 2009. I know there are plenty of people and companies still running older XP systems, and they are fine until they are ready for an upgrade (XP was a good system and still runs well on those systems), I still do not get why there are SO MANY people out there still trying to load XP on new systems, when Windows 7 does everything better. Of course there will be some programs that may not run (usually very old ones). Of course some things will need to be done differently, but those are usually for the better in the long run once you get more comfortable with them. For most just running a program in compatibility mode or replacing that particular program is all that is needed. For many companies that are using complete systems that are 8-10 years old, possible older with a mix of NT. W2000, and XP, it is time for a complete upgrade (probably all network hardware as well). The improvement in productivity will offset the expense over time and waiting until systems begin failing is a bad time to be thinking about upgrading (usually the rush will be more expensive and there will be some poor choices made). Besides,the economy could use the boost.
Sorry, just needed to get that out.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
