I think you need to make a os by yourself by using a software called nlite where it allow to put your hard drive driver. you can download your hard drive driver from your laptop company website. nowadays windows xp is unable to detect new hard drive like your case.
after you download the lastest version of nlite. its simple to make a custom os.
before you start the running nlite :-
1. you need to copy all files of wndows xp in a drive.
2. when you run nlite program, it will asked you the source -> just navigates to the place where you paste the xp files.
next steps are easy as they are user friendly

You can access Vista disk management (right click on computer from the Start Menu > Manage > Storage > Disk Management) and shrink your current partition and create a new one. Then install XP on that new partition. This is if you want a dual boot of both XP and Vista.

if you have the xp installation disk, you can do a repair...then hopefully it will recognize your harddrive long enough to be able to give commands to fix it.

well...you can't have 2 operating systems on the same harddrive...well you can but it's highly not recommended. so what you should do is put in the vista installation disk and do repair, then put the command "FORMAT" then it should format that drive (make sure you have everything saved) once it's formatted, you can then install the xp

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
