Before you even attempt this you should check with DELL to see if all necessary device drivers are available. This is a particularly serious problem with laptops. The XP CD will not have drivers for devices that did not exist when it was produced.
Your immediate problem is likely because XP does not natively support SATA drives. This problem can usually be overcome but it matters little if drivers are not available.
