Most likely, you can't, because the drivers needed to do this simply do not exist.

You will need a driver for the Windows first stage installer for your specific motherboard because Windows XP came out before SATA even existed, and after that you will need XP drivers for the rest of the hardware in your computer. There is a very strong possibility some or all of these drivers simply do not exist.

IMO your best bet is to find an older IDE machine or get a laptop before 2006. I'm sure there's quite a few out there that are not being used anymore.
