What software did you use to slip the drivers?
I use DriverPacks to slipstream "Mass storage" drivers into the XP CD. The mass storage driver pack has all the mass storage driver available, this solves the problem of you finding the correct one for your chipset.
Driver packs tutorial, read carefully.
Download software "Driverpacks Base" program
You can install other driver packs besides the "Mass Storage", but this will bloat the size of the XP install to DVD size, The only driver packs I suggest to slipstream are
Mass Storage, Chipset, Lan, CPU
This will keep it a size to fit on a CD. If you want all the drivers slipstreamed it will require a DVD burner to make the DVD and a DVD drive on the target installation PC.
I don't change any of the default settings when using the software, just pick the driver packs you want to slipstream and create the ISO image.
**If you use other customizing software for other reasons than drivers such as Nlite, use Nlite first then driver packs last or install problems will result. Only use DP to slip drivers, do not use Nlite for this task.
*** Start with clean unmodified Installation files when using DP for best results
***Note, Driverpacks no longer allows you to download the driverpacks from their site using the program (you will get an error), driverpacks are now distributed via bittorrent, the torrent file for each driverpack can be found on the driverpacks download page, once you have the 7zip Driverpack files you need, copy them (do not unzip them) into the "DriverPacks" folder where you installed the Base program. When you run the program skip the update driverpacks step in the process.

I tried using them, and they worked on the virtual machine until it came to XP actually running, at which explorer.exe would hang, and i couldnt set up XP past that, But it still BSOD when actually running the cd on the laptop its self

That is considered pirated software, there is no telling what they did to the installation files, I would try a known clean XP sp3 install disc from Microsoft or Dell just to see if it works.
