Windows 7: Windows XP Installation Error

Windows XP Installation Error

I'm trying to install Windows XP on an HP DM1 laptop that's currently running Ubuntu 11.01. I have an OEM Windows XP Pro SP2 disk that I'm using to boot. Ideally, I'd like to dual-boot with XP and Ubuntu, however I can't get past the initial installation screen. After it finishes loading the drivers for install, this screen pops up. There's no option in the BIOS settings to change anything that it lists in the error message,

Any ideas?

Turn AHCI to IDE in bios - if there is this option.
Or use a AHCI driver.

I have seen countless threads on this. So, let me make this easier. After a fresh install, and tons of Windows updates, the Windows Installer breaks. Totally unfixable. I tried every fix on the internet. I never had this problem when I first bought this computer in 2009. But now, all of a sudden,...
