Unplug all the drives leaving just the one you wish to install XP to.. Set the SATA option in the BIOS to IDE (or make sure it is set as such).. Ensure you have the SATA controllers uzipped and on a floppy disc.. Remove the RAM leaving you with 1 stick. Unplug any card readers.. Then try installing XP... (and if you are using an IDE drive, ensure it is set to master)..

If you are using an IDE drive, you don't need to F6 and install SATA drivers... If your XP disc is a genuine M$ one with SP3, have found that again generally F6 and floppy disc is not needed...
