If the problem is that the CD doesn't start (or show the press key to continue thing) you will have to change the boot order in the BIOS setup..

You need SATA controller drivers (ich9). Look at the intel site for the sata drivers and find the f6 drivers package. read the readme.txt with that driver pack to choose the right one for your laptop. these can be loaded during Windows XP install start using the F6 option. (you will need a usb floppy drive). If you don't have access to a floppy drive you should try to slipstream the sata drivers to your windows XP installation disk. look at www.nliteos.com for free softare that makes this easy.
