The Windows XP disk does not have drivers for the SATA controller that HP uses. You will need to modify the XP disk and add the controller software. Google "slipstream" for instructions. You will also have missing network controller driver and sound driver.

I would just forget installing XP on this laptop. It takes a VERY advanced user to do it.

Good Luck
