Hi there
you don't have to disable SATA drivers to install XP

"Slipstream" SATA drivers and SP2/3 into your XP install disk and then it will work just fine.

Use the "Driverpacks" site on how to slipstream - together with vLite . nLite to build a nrw bootable ISO.

Just google slipstream driverpacks into XP.

The driverpacks site has XP drivers for all these SATA disks etc.
Cheers
