There are two ways to do that:
If you have a floppy drive attached or you may attach to your lap then.

  1. Goto your Motherboard manufacturer's site and download AHCI driver.
  2. Expand this file (it may be auto extract or zipped) in to floppy disk.
  3. Then start setup normally, keep constant eye on bottom of setup screen you will find a message like 'Press F6 for third party RAID driver'
  4. At that time press F6.
  5. Setup will ask you for the floppy, insert that floppy in the drive and follow the instructs.......

If you don't have floppy drived attached to your lap then.
  1. download the driver and expand it in any folder.
  2. use nlite software to split the driver in windows setup disk.
  3. burn the new splittered setup to cd.
  4. run setup from that CD that will read your SATA drive.
If any problem just Ask me.
Thanks

Windows XP needs the SATA textmode drivers for it to recognise the SATA hard drive. This can be downloaded from this link:
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2391
You will need the SATA AHCI driver

You must then burn the drivers to a CD or copy to a USB stick. When installing windows XP, you will be prompted "press F6" to load additional drivers, at this point the install will ask you to specify where these drivers can be found, if you direct it to the USB or CD Rom (USB is better to avoid disc swapping), it should find the drivers needed and then recognise your hard drive.

The above is a bit academic though, because this does not appear to support Windows XP according to the downloads options on the link

Philips Freevents X56 laptop won't switch on!


Could be anyone of a number of things related to internal batteries. Let it charge for a while (does the charging light come on on the laptop? - isn't clear if the green light is on the powersupply or the laptop itself) and trying again.
