You can install windows XP.
First go to BIOS and change sata mode to IDE mode
or option to disable SATA Native mode
then choose mode to IDE or disable SATA Native mode
then install windows XP
If there is no option about change sata mode in BIOS.
You should insert ahci driver to Windows XP CD using nLite
you can use this driver
Or you can install windows by inserting driver when setup prompted
To install Windows XP with native SATA driver, perform the following steps:
Boot the notebook PC.
Insert the Windows XP installation CD into the optical CD/DVD drive.
Press the F6 key when prompted
Press the S key to specify the additional device.
Insert the SATA driver disk into drive A. (using floppy disk drive)
Follow the on-screen prompts.
Or if both way is cannot be done
i have the third way
use an unattended XP installation disk
you can download it from here:
after you download
burn the CD image to the CD/DVD
then install XP using that CD/DVD
