Windows 7 / XP Dual Boot Setup

Ok, here is my dilemma. I have for ages been trying to install XP Home Edition as a dual boot setup with Windows 7 on a HP dv6-3019ax. I cant even get the setup to run and have gone through exactly 40 CDs trying do acheive this. I cant find the appropriate SCSI or SATA drivers so windows can recognize my HDD, no even on the HP website. So i searched for other possible drivers i thought might work, but no luck. I am attaching 1 driver at a time with .INF format.

Heres what happens....

1. Windows Boots from the CD
2. whem checking for hardware configuration, it goes real quick...nothing loads.
3. I press F6 for third party SCSI driver, nothing is found then i press S to specify a driver. Still nothing found
4. I press ENTER to continue loading windows setup, then get the blue screen of death.

Ive tried multiple drivers, tried disabling nativeSATA settiings in the BIOS, but wasnt supported by the BIOS, so tried updating the BIOS, but with the latest version, still not supported.

HP told me this exercise was impossible, as there are too many compatibility issues, and that i was unable to partition the HP drive C:, and I have found avaliable XP drivers for my hardware. I dont beleive them.

Can i slipstream multiple AHCI SATA drivers to my XP installation CD?

Please can someone help put an end to my hell!! I need XP as i have an uncompatible program i need for work.

Thanks
