How are you actually trying to do the downgrade?

Would not bother, XP 64bit has poor driver support and was not a good O/S,

Do not bother.
Modern machines lack the driver support for XP so you will not be able to run most of your hardware properly if at all.
Windows XP cannot install in SATA hard drives without SATA drivers being preinstalled during the beginning of the install process (through floppy or merged onto the install disk).
Windows 7 64bit should have more than the 2GB RAM that you are showing to run well, I recommend 4GB or more.
If there is a true reason you need XP, it probably is not as needed as you think it is. Most 32bit programs that will run on XP will also run onm 64bit Windows 7. Some will need you to install them and run them in Compatibility mode, but that is not difficult. Most of the remaining few can be run under a Virtual machine installed on a virtual copy of XP. Windows 7 Professional offers this as an optional download, but there are other free downloadable VM's and once you install one, you install XP Within the virtual machine (no license needed), and then install your program on that. This works around all of the problems trying to install XP you would otherwise encounter.

For more information, include your system specs and the program or other reason you are trying to use XP instead of moving forward into the future.

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