Is your laptop has a previously installed os such as Win Vista or 7? and changing the controller in BIOS did not work? then the problem can be solved by following the instructions on this link:

https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/resolving-setup-did-not-find-any-hard-disk-drives-during-windows-xp-installation/

Basically you need to create a custom windows xp CD and you need to download some drivers and copy them to the custom made OS.
