Since your laptop uses a S-ata hard drive it wont be detected by xp unless you use a Floppy disk with the correct s-ata drivers from acer website.
Only option is to use a floppy disk, to my knowledge you cant use a usb memory or anything else, I suppose modifying the xp installation disk and adding the drivers there might do it but That's too complex, as your laptop most likely doesn't have a floppy drive the best choice would be to install xp into the hard drive from another pc. Just to the part where the files are copied to the hard drive and its ready to Begin the installation with the visual interface (where you can use mouse and set a few settings etc)
I would say its going to be hard and painfull to get it done.
If this solution was any help at all please rate it as helpful or fixya. And if you need anything else let me know, you can ask me 24/7 by clickingon the ask me button, I will answer in most cases within 24hours.
Thanks and good luck!
