Hi,

If the BIOS have not a option to change the SATA function to IDE, your only option is to modify the Windows XP install CD with updated SATA drivers that work with your motherboard.

You can find these kind of Windows Installation CD which include all your SATA drivers for your disk in a computer shop.

Regards!
