You need to find out first if there are XP drivers for your machine before attempting to install it. Newer machines often don't have appropriate drivers for older operating systems.

you should go to BIOS and set the HDD mode to SATA if they are in AHCI mode..

Windows xp setup does not have drivers for AHCI often..Otherwise you can slim-trim your XP installation media which will include AHCI drivers.


www.nliteos.com/ will give u more info on slim-trim.
