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.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

Unplug your Windows 7 drive, plug in the drive you plan to install XP on. Install XP. Plug both drives in and use the bios to choose which Operating System you want to boot from and use.

Trust me this is the best and easiest way to do it.

If not you will have to run a startup repair to get Windows 7 booting again, and then you will have to add EasyBCD to Windows 7 to add XP to the boot screen.

Very easy to do it the way I first described if you are a novice
