... have you also checked to see that there is'nt a CD in the tray?

"...Anyway what is the message means..."

... your xp pc is booting-up to the first device that it is set to in the bios which does not have any booting capabilities.

... please post here your pc make and model number, it may have a "sata" driver problem!

... do you have xp cd?
