hi

if you have problem with installing xp, please do this.

Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS
If the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps.
1. Turn off the computer.
2 Press the power button and press f10 to open the BIOS Setup.
3. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting.
If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.
If there is no SATA setting, use one of the other options in this document to change the settings.
