my first thought is a AHCI controller issue, XP does not have the proper drivers to boot up or its loading the incorrect drivers. its not an uncommon issue trying to put such an old and outdated OS on newer hardware. im going to recomend you dont downgrade to XP, if you really do want to then i would build a custom XP disk with your exact drivers pre-installed on it. you can use tools such as Nlite to do that.
