What version of XP are you trying to install? XP didn't support installing to/from SATA drives until SP2 I think. That could be your problem. If that is the case, you can install the SATA drivers from a floppy (which you may not have) or slipstream them onto an XP install disc. Instructions for that are here.
Hope that helps.
