SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.
Press F8 several times and when the menu comes up select Safe mode. Then download and install the video driver. You can download the video and device drivers from ASUS WEB site.Select your model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select driversthat matches your Windows operating system.

I dont think you will be able to use xp as this and many other Asus machines are released after vista and do not have xp drivers for them. You would have to search individually for the component drivers for xp, that is if they even exist? you would be best sticking to a vista install. My Asus z2s would not work with xp as half of the components had no xp drivers available.
