That is because SATA did not exist when XP was written.
You need to search for a SATA driver for your motherboard.

- goto bios setup
- dissable sata
- save and exit setup
- try installing XP

it will work...

if u want to enable sata u need to install sata driver by pressin F6 at the begining of windows setup. for this u might need a floppy drive.. just try dissabling sata.. if its not workin, let me know...

If the OP is trying to install onto a SATA drive then disabeling SATA in the bios will not work.
