try this 1

1) download nlite software & install it
https://www.nliteos.com/download.html

2) download SATA AHCI Controller Driver from this link
http://global-download.acer.com/...

then extract the files.

3) open the nlite software, place your xp cd in the drive--->click on browse and navigate it to your cd drive that contains xp cd placed in that drive.
then follow the instructions

4) In task selection --->select drivers and bootable ISO options -->click on next

5)Now select the SATA drivers to integrate with your OS. Click Insert--> select Single driver and then navigate to the extracted files location and select nvgts.inf and click Open.

6)In text mode integration options---->select all the drivers from the list and click on OK.

Then follow the simple instructions. You can burn the cd or create an ISO file.

Note : Change the SATA mode to default that is AHCI, because you may face problem operating vista in ahci and xp in ide mode.
