If you had vista originally installed on your laptop! you will have to change the sata operation on bios settings! change it to IDE mode!
In order to Install Win XP,you must first go into your System BIOS and see if there's some options for SATA such as Native SATA or AHCI. If so, disable them and then try to install XP.

The BSOD screen is the result a of sata/raid issue with XP. So disabling AHCI in your BIOS will get rid od the BSOD.

Worked for me AND I had Windows 7 Installed.
