Check in BIOS to see if your motherboard supports IDE emulation mode. If it does turn it on and XP will install just fine.
Download and read about using nlite to incorporate sata drivers into an Windows XP installation disc. (You will need another working computer. Download nlite and insert the XP disc run nlite and select your CD as your windows install file location. Download generic sata drivers, intel has a bunch you can get for free. In the nlite menu to add drivers select folder option and select the folder with the drivers. Set anything else you want in nlite and burn the new XP disc. This disc will install just fine as it now has sata drivers.
You might need to use the "Floppy" version of the Driver upon install (if you know what the chipsets are. Most likely it's Intel and you can slip stream the driver files into a new XP CD.
However if a partition is formated from Vista and you attempt to install XP over it without formatting it, crash is almost certain - XP and Vista have different versions of NTFS.
If you want both XP and Vista on the same machine, ALWAYS install the older one first! i.e. XP first. And create only 1 partition in XP where you intend to install on.
Then install Vista afterwards with Vista created partition.
