The original Windows XP Installation CD, a freeware application named NLite and a blank CD.
we need the drivers for the SATA controller provided by the manufacturer.
When you start the Nlite application, you will be asked to provide the location for the Windows installation package. Insert the genuine Windows Installation CD into the CD drive and, inside the application, select the CD drive letter.
To insert the SATA drivers within the installation package, you need to have it saved on the HDD. Hence, when the warning window appears click OK and select the destination folder for the files to be saved. Make sure that the destination partition / HDD has enough space to store the contents of the installation CD.
Immediately after you have chosen the destination folder, the application will start copying the Windows installation files. When finished, it will display some version information regarding the newly copied Windows Installation Package.
Now, click next twice until you get to a screen where you get options sorted in 4 categories: Integrate, Remove, Setup, Create. We are interested in the integration procedure, therefore select the Drivers button and click next. From the next menu window, click Import and select multiple drive folder option from the drop down menu. This option permits you to browse to the location where the downloaded drivers are found.
Select the containing directory and click next. You will get a list with the available drivers (in case there are more than one) or simply one driver. Select it (them) and click next. Now the application will ask for the permission to start the integration procedure. Choose Yes and wait for the drivers to be inserted into the installation package.
With problematic driver being included in the installation package you can install Windows XP on your SATA HDD...but...the installation package is on the HDD. You need a bootable CD in order to start an installation. Don't worry, once the installation package has been adorned with additional user selected drivers it can be transformed into a bootable disk image and later burned on a CD. To encapsulate the installation into a ISO image use the same Nlite application.
Open it, make sure the HDD installation folder is selected and click next. Select "Last session" preset and click next again. Now from the options menu choose Bootable ISO and click next. In the following window, make sure that the mode is set to "Create Image" and click Make ISO. A destination folder is required where the resulting ISO image will be saved. Once the image saving process finished you have the freedom to burn it on a blank CD with whatever you favorite CD burner software may be.
The new CD will be the twin copy of the Windows Installation CD but with one difference, it includes the SATA driver

A lot of things to read, a lot of things to understand. Becasue if this, there will now a confussion between his answer & them. Well to be honest, the root of the issue regarding VISTA to XP on Laptop machine is the BIOS. I believe the BIOS of HP Pavilion is 'PHOENIX' (i hope my spelling is correct). My assumption is, HP & the manufacturer of BIOS has an aggreement to KILL Windows XP OS. They remove the OPTION in the BIOS to change the setting of SATA. My advice to all users of LAPTOP, it is better to buy IBM Thinkpad rather than HP. IBM is using different BIOS manufacturer, & it is possible to disable SATA drive.
NOW, on my solution to solve your issue. Kindly download a device driver of SATA & then extract the file to floppy disk. Then make an ISO image of windows XP SP2. Make sure that you have a knowledge to incorporate SATA device driver in your ISO image before burning it into CD. Because if not, you may need to press F6 while WinXP is loading device driver during installation. Once done & created a WinXP bootable disk, you may install WINXP without any issue of SATA device.

I'm not sure solution #1 is very explanatory, so....
IF you want to install XP on your computer, Windows XP will load most of the drivers you need automatically.
For the drivers that are specific to your HP pavilion
you will be able to download device drivers from HP website
or, request a driver CD
When XP is installed [assuming you or someone can do that]
Go to the 'My Computer' icon [right-click]
If you have any drivers that need to be installed, there should be
a yellow (?) question mark by the name of the hardware
Most devices/hardware will be handled by XP SP2
The default drivers will be loaded automatically
For example, your keyboard:
Above you see the window that opens if I double-click on
the 'Keyboard' icon.
For XP to function, you only have to worry about the ones
with the yellow (?) question mark
Or, if you want to add a specific driver, like a Video or Sound driver, but you don't see a yellow (?) question mark
you can still install/update the driver at the 'driver' tab
[second tab in the picture above]
If you need more specific help I can do that too

SOURCE: server 2003 sp1 not installing
Plz be posted , in case of server installation - it is veryu delicate the above situation may occur only for the following points .
1.intallation files were skipped by user manually (due to bad CD)
2.Improper Installation (in case root directory contained XP os and installation was overridden windows folder )
3.using a crack patch to OS for CD-KEY.
check and let us know.
