Hi there,

You need to make changes in bios for which links below from Faq will guide you:

https://ccm.net/faq/2370-downgrade-from-windows-vista-to-xp-hdd-s-ata-not-recognized
http://ccm.net/faq/2667-moving-from-vista-to-xp

This is because you have sata hard drive and need to disable it in bios settings.

Thanks
