Make sure any harddisk drivers are powered on and properly connected to your computer,and that any disk related hardware configuration is correct.This may involve running a manufacturer-supplies diagnostic or setup program.

You must disable the native mode for the SATA in setup mode.
***NOTE*** be sure that you have all of your drivers for the SATA and all drivers for windows xp before beginning.

Your harddrive is probably S-ATA and xp doesnt have a build in driver for it. You need to download a S-ata driver from hps website, I'm not sure if xp can read the driver from anywhere else but a floppy. So i that case your going to need to buy a USB floppy drive.
Theres a tutorial on how to make the floppy.
If the floppy doesnt work, you might need to copy all the xp files into the hard drive and add the Sata driver into the xp installer, that can be hard todo maybe il give you instructions on that later.

SOURCE: what is this
if you are doing a clean XP install the CD will ask if you if you want to change your partitions.Afterwards it will automatically format the hard drive.Some of the OS discs dont come with drivers you will have to hunt for them on the internet.If you are using a restore disc copyied from a working machine it should have generic drivers already loaded in the disc.
