As you have your BIOS set to IDE mode, if you change to AHCI mode Windows 7 will not boot.

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.
If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.

When I selected single driver there is iaStor.inf selectable then select iaAHCI the result is shown the same as selecting multiple driver folder which is portrayed in the picture. Thus should I select the highlighted items?
