As long as you know what SATA ACHI controller you have (and you can check that from your current OS before wiping it out), to me it is so much easier to just have a USB floppy drive in your toolkit, have it plugged in when you boot from the XP installation disk, and at the XP installation F6 prompt, you hit the F6 key.
Then XP continues loading files, stops, and prompts you to hit the S key to load your drivers. You will see your FDD and you use your Up/Down arrow keys to scroll to the driver you need. You select it, and follow the rest of the prompts.
XP should load without any issues.
Below is the link to the Intel SATA ACHI drivers. Select the first file on the list (XP 32 bit).
Extract the drivers onto a floppy disk.
When the XP install routine brings you to the S prompt, I believe the driver you need to select for the HP 630 is the Intel (R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller.
I never do it any other way for desktops or notebooks, and have yet to be confounded by the XP stop error.

Your problem does not seem to be about SATA drivers.
It is likely that the CD you made is for some reason not completely readable to the target machine. Double check your nlite settings. Try burning it again at a lower speed (the text mode part of setup seems to be someway fastidious about the CD quality). If you do not want to throw away too many coasters, try burning it again onto a good quality CDRW at the slowest speed possible.
Let us know any further development.

you have just saved my job. I've been attempting this fix for 4 hours now and after slipstreaming the driver you found, I am successfully installing XP.
Thank you sooooo much!!!!

@Paul_Tikkanen: This solution won't work with this HP 630 Laptop and Windows XP Home SP2.
@lorenzozanett: Which dirver (from the HM65 driver you've linked) I have to select out of the iaAHCI.inf while including it into the slipstream install CD? Tried the Intel Mobile Express but the installation still stops with the same bluescreen.

I edited the inaccurate info from this post, and you need to select the Intel (R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller.
I recommend you slipstream all of the drivers from Intel into the copy of the XP install disk, and then you don't have to be concerned with which one you actually need.

Forget what I said. I take it all back.
The Intel (R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller is the right choice for the HP 630 and so it works also with the USB-Floppy. I already tried "all 3 options" who are visible on selection screen, but there are much more options available, by scrolling up to the top of the list with up arrow key. (omg ^^) - Thanks for the quick reply.
And now I have to complete the Win XP installation

Glad you got it to to work.
Yes, you need to use the up/dn arrow keys to see all of the driver options when using a USB FDD to load them at the F6 prompt.
However, I didn't mention that in my post, since you posted that you were slipstreaming the drivers.

Who would have thought there would be different chipsets in that model?
The ACHI driver you installed is normally for the Mobile Intel 6 series chipsets.
I guess if you are downgrading each machine to XP, you should first go to the device manager in Windows 7, and see what SATA ACHI controller is installed, so you can select what image to install on that particular notebook-- the Intel (R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller, or the Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller

Very big thanks for your help
In my case it only works slipstreaming all the drivers into XP.
When i used a USB floppy F6 works fine but i was asked again for the intel rapid storage technology drivers on disk A before the installation starts to copie the files and there he couldn't find them.
