it seems that the Windows XP install can't find your hard disk because it doesn't have the necessary driver. You have some options:

a) put the SATA driver on removable media and load it during Windows setup
b) rebuild the Windows XP media with drivers built in

I would say you were trying to install Windows 7 using XP_installation instructions.

Method 2 is for "Installing XP after Win 7 is installed"
