Hi,

You are having this blue screen since you have sata hard drive and for installation of xp on a sata hard drive here are the steps:

First.
On the Setup of your BIOS,
Choose the ATA instead of AHCI on the SATA configuration..
then now apply the changes. then insert your cd on the cd rom. make sure you have chosen the cd as your first boot device.
