How can i install window xp in my hp laptop?

#1
when i install xp, it shows that there is no hard disk installed, but window vista can be installed. My friend told me about the bios option but there is no option in the bios setting.
Can anybody sort it out?

You dont have the SATA drivers for XP. New machines use SATA Hard Drives. XP didnt come with SATA drivers by default so you have to use the F6 to install 3rd party drivers during setup.

I would seriously consider this a warning. As you might find that this is not the only driver missing. Many manufacturer's have stopped supplying XP drivers. Last thing you want to do is finally get XP installed, just to find out you have no sound, mouse, or other device support.
