I am afraid you are not going to like my answer to the question relating to Windows XP. This is because Windows XP is not supported (officially) as an Operating System on PowerEdge 1600sc.
Regarding the System BIOS, the only change is to ensure that the system is set to boot from the Optical Drive (CD/DVD) first. You can change/verify this from boot sequence sub menu. If you think you have made unknown changes to the BIOS settings, you may use keyboard shortcut ALT+D to reset individual highlighted field to factory defaults or ALT+E to reset the entire System BIOS to factory defaults. ***Please don't reset BIOS settings unless you know what you are doing***
Now back to the question regarding Windows XP. To proceed, you will need drivers for the Mass Storage Controller. PowerEdge 1600sc can be configured with PERC 3/SC (SCSI RAID) or CERC ATA 100/4 (IDE RAID) or basic SCSI using the onboard LSI U320 SCSI controller. As Windows XP is not officially supported there are no certified drivers.
At your own risk (system stability issues) you may try using Windows Server 2000 or 2003 drivers.
If further help is need let me know.
