Hello,

Try this 1.

Solution 1:

Just change the SATA mode to IDE/Compatible Mode in BIOS. But the

performance decreases.

Or

Solution 2:

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

2) Download SATA Driver from this link
https://downloadmirror.intel.com/17413/eng/f6flpy3288.zip

After downloading ---> right click on f6flpy3288.zip file--->select "Extract to

f6flpy3288.zip/" (Note : You can use winrar to extract the files)

3) Place the "Windows xp" cd in the drive.

4) Open nlite application---> click on "Browse" and navigate it to your cd drive

that contains xp cd placed in that drive. ----> then it asks you where to save the

files ----> just navigate to your desired location ---> click on "New Folder" button

and select that folder --->click on OK---> Now it copies the windows xp files. After

that click on Next--->Next.

5) In task selection --->Click on "Drivers" and "Bootable ISO" options -->click on

"Next"

6) Now click on "Insert" ---> click on "Multiple Folder"----> Navigate to the driver's

extracted location and select the folder "f6flpy3288.zip" ---->Click on "All"

button---> ----->Click on "OK"--->in "Text mode integration options", Select all

the drivers and click on OK--->Click on "Next".

7) Click on "Yes" to start the process. Then click on "Next".

8) In "Mode" option select your choice whether you want to make image or burn

it to cd.

9) If you want to make ISO file then click on "Make ISO" button

10) After burning this slipstream xp, now try to install it.

Good luck.
