It is not possilble. Try with other XP CD. It will definitely get installed on your PC.
WINDOWS XP REQUIRES MINIMUM OF 128MB OF RAM.

Please do so, your problem will get solved.

Hello Download the SATA driver for your particular chipset. Then download nlite (just google it). Install it and follow the directions to slipstream the driver into your installation disc. You can also add SP3 and all the drivers you need to it.
or go to bios and restore it to default setting if you have a sata hard disk then disable it in bios setting or RAID Auto/Ahci to RAID Auto/ATA then reboot from installation disk or You can get help from this site http://www.laptops-drivers.com/compaq/how-to-install-windows-xp-on-hp-compaq-cq40-115au.html

Check whether you have installed the SATA Hard Drive driver using a Floppy disk. Some Computers needs SATA Hard Drive Driver before installing the Windows XP. Try using Windows XP SP2 disk.

Prepare a Bootable XP Disc installer.
At first go to BIOS Setup to Boot First Priority the CD/DVD Rom Drive.
After that disabled SATA or RAID Configuration. The Bootable XP Disc Installer could not go on when you don't disable the SATA or RAID Connection.
Don't worry that you are thinking it would not detected the SATA HDD by Bootable Disc but it is. Then follow the instruction.
Good luck!

If i am helpful to you please rate me.
Thank you.

Intalling window xp over vista


XP does not include SATA drivers in the distribution. You need to get the SATA drivers for your particular model from HP's website and watch for the prompt to hit F6 when prompted to install SATA or RAID drivers.

The trick is that the mechanism to add these drivers at this point assumes that you have a floppy drive which is rare these days. There are a number of work-arounds for this, here is one:

How to install windows xp sp2 on compaq v3239tu


That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .

Problem in XP installation in the HP presario Note book


Sata hard disk does not require driver, however the sata controller which belong to any manufacturer may require. You have to go to driver cdrom, browse for IDE OR SATA if you cannot find it the clue is "RAID" find the RAID driver, you will also find the sata controller driver
example only: si3112.cat, si3112.inf, siblabla.bla....

copy all the files in folder (do not copy folder!! only files). Then put floppy disk in drive, make sure you boot from cd-rom.

Start XP installation then follow:
Press F6 for third party SCSI or driver installation at the beginning of text mode installation. Press 's' when setup asks if you want to specify an additional device, and insert the diskette then press 'Enter'. From the menu presented next, select the controller installation process that corresponds to the version of Windows being installed and press 'Enter'.
4. Press 'Enter' again when prompted to continue on with text mode setup.

5. Follow the setup instructions to select your choice for partition and file system.

6. After setup examines your disks, it will copy files from the CD to the hard drive selected above and restart the system. After restart the setup process will resume to finish the installation.

Good Luck
