This is a complex problem that stems from the fact that the Windows XP CD does not have drivers for the advanced SATA controller in the laptop. I suggest you search this forum and the internet for the terms "slipstream" and "nlite". If you can find the proper driver you can use the nlite program to slipstream the driver into a custom Windows XP install disk. This is only the start of your problems - you will not have hardware drivers for the video, network interface and sound chip.

Good Luck
