You are almost certainly trying to install XP on a SATA HDD, in which case you will need to load some special drivers because XP was released before SATA existed.

Google "Install Windows XP on SATA" to get started.

Make sure you have IDE and not AHCI selected in the bios. or make a AHCI driver disk and press f6 to install the AHCI drivers at the beginning of the install when it tells you.

XP installs just fine on a SATA drive, as long as you follow one of the above steps!
