Try going to the bios and change it to IDE instead of AHCI. Otherwise you'll need to slipstream your XP with the sata drivers, http://news.softpedia.com/news/Install-Windows-XP-On-SATA-Without-a-Floppy-F6-47807.shtml

If you're successful in installing XP you will then need to find the drivers for your motherboard etc, same as with your other post. Nothing is simple sadly.
