Windows 7: Multi boot with Win 7x64 and Win2000x32

So apparently after researching, winxp does not support AHCI. Regardless if I have the controller drivers or not winxp probably will not install right?

There is no way for me to disable AHCI in the bios. HP allows for a very basic bios menu. Is there anyway I can upgrade my bios to something more configurable?

This why you need to load sata drivers at F6 when installing Win 2000 or Win XP

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