Faizy:: It appears you failed to carefully read the question. Your answer has nothing to do with the question at all....

JacobJames::
First, you need to understand that most newer hardware does NOT support Windows XP and you will therefore not find correct drivers for your hardware. You absolutely need to make sure that drivers are available for your hardware BEFORE you try to install it.
Second, you need to know that Windows XP does NOT support SATA hard drives natively so you will either need to Slipstream SATA drivers into a custom install disk OR you will need to be able to find in your BIOS the ability to emulate your hard drive as a IDE drive until your operating system is installed as well as your SATA drivers. Then you can switch it back to a full speed SATA drive.
Third, you would be MUCH better off leaving (or restoring) the system as Windows 7 (much better system) and if you absolutely need to run older software that does not appear to run under Windows 7 then first try compatibility mode (often works) OR install a virtual machine on your system and install XP on the virtual machine WITHIN Windows 7 and then install your software.

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

Thank you much Fingers for your response...
I think my system will support XP because drives for XP are there in my driver CD.
Now i will try to Slipstream SATA drivers into a custom install disk.After that i will update my status here.
