I believe you need to have WinXP with SP1 or SP1a on the disc or maybe SP2 to get SATA support, otherwise you'll need the SATA drivers for 64-bit copied onto a USB drive and plugged in then press F6 at the prompt to install SCSI drives from disc. That install screen just was never updated to display other removable devices than a floppy. I've done it with the 32-bit versions of WinXP a number of years ago, never had 64-bit hardware until Vista came out but needed Vista so never installed the 64-bit WinXP.
