Check in BIOS to see if your motherboard supports IDE emulation mode. If it does turn it on and XP will install just fine.
Download and read about using nlite to incorporate sata drivers into an Windows XP installation disc. (You will need another working computer. Download nlite and insert the XP disc run nlite and select your CD as your windows install file location. Download generic sata drivers, intel has a bunch you can get for free. In the nlite menu to add drivers select folder option and select the folder with the drivers. Set anything else you want in nlite and burn the new XP disc. This disc will install just fine as it now has sata drivers.
There are case where BIOS stting doesn't contain any point of configuration for SATA.,
Step 1 : Download SATA driver
Here is the link : http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/12474/eng/iata621_enu.exe&agr=N&ProductID=2101&DwnldId=12474&strOSs=All&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems&lang=eng
Step 2 : Download a software called "nlite"
Here is the link : http://home.midmaine.com/~nlite/nlite/nLite-184.108.40.206.installer.exe
Now you need to include SATA driver with Windows XP cd so that windows XP recognize your HARD DRIVE.it can't be include diectly so
Installed the nlite software and follow the instruction by going to the link below.
Note : Microsoft dotnet framework 2.0 or later is needed to install nlite in Windows XP,but if you are making a bootable Windows XP cd with sata driver pre-install then,you don't need it.
The first thing to do is go into the bios. To do this, power up the laptop and hit F2 at start up. Sometimes it requires hitting the F2 button numerous times. You should see message in the top right corner that says "Entering Set Up". Once in the bios screen, look through menu to see if your hard drive is recognized by the bios. If it is not recognized by the bios, it may be a defective hard drive or problem with the motherboard. You might also try removing the hard drive and checking for any problems with the connector then reinstalling the hard drive and trying to boot up again. If this does not work, I would recommend replacing the hard drive.
burn the ISO disc and boot from cd rom and get it repair it automatically.
if you want to installed windows XP or 98;the reason why your hard disk could not be detected is your hard drive is SATA. disable any sata setting in your BIOS IDE configuration( if setting is not available then download SATA driver and Nlite ;make a bootable windows xp disc with SATA driver pre installed . this is solve your problem
you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.
If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.
If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc : Nlite download
You need to sliptream SATA drivers into your setup disk.
