CPU: intel atom processorN450 (1,666 hz,512 kb cache)
Memory: 1 GB RAM
Storage: 160 GB

I maked a shrink volume and got a 50 GB partition, but I dont know how to install win xp in that partition and use in boot. hope this info helps

I doubt xp would be supported on a netbook. Since you have ultimate, use the xp mode.
