How to install windows xp on Sony VPCEG25EN by changing bios settings

Hi,

I have sony vaio VPCEG25EN laptop. It is preloaded with windows7 home basic. I need to install windows xp for my Academic Project.

When i try to install windows xp, installation is not going further because HDD is not being detected. Many suggested me to change the bios to a lower version.

I need to make a dual boot now with both windows 7 and windows xp.

Current bios version is 7.0.10.1203 . Can you please solve my problem. I have only two days left before i can install xp and run my project.
