i get new PC DELL VOSTRO, and i am getting real trouble with it because i can't install win XP on it. and the cause is that don't contain IDE option in the SATA.
in the BIOS i have tow choices AHCI or RAID (and by default it work with AHCI).
is there any solution for this problem ?

So presumably the motherboard does not support IDE and you have an IDE HDD. The question is WHY??? If you get a new PC why are you trying to change the HDD and void the warranty? also why install Windows XP when is going out of support very very soon??

Is the HDD displayed in the BIOS, if so is it not displayed when you boot from CD to install os?

What Vostro model you have?

Win7 to XP is huge downgrade, questionable as well.
