You need sata drivers slipstreamed into the XP install cd
here are the XP sata drivers,
dowload the package to an empty folder, then use winzip or 7-zip to extract the contents of the exe file to the same folder, the drivers you need will be in the Files/32 folder.
Use nlite to slipstream the driver files into the XP install cd, it shoul find the hard drive now.
guides for nilte
unfortunately you might not be able to find some of the other drivers you need for XP.
