If it discovers an XP installation, try tapping F8 at bootup to see if you can enter XP Safe Mode. This might be a driver issue that can be fixed in safe mode. You could even insert drivers needed by tapping F6 while installer is loading drivers.
Cover your ears (Or just mute your computer, because the background sound of the video is a bit weird.)

Need to put your storage controller driver in at the F6 prompt during file loading of XP installer.

Locate it on your Support Downloads page for your computer model, or google your model for mobo, then google mobo ID + xp storage controller. Put it on your card and browse to it from F6 prompt

If you had your System Specs filled out, I could have already found it for ya.

Doubt whether you have a floppy tho, so you will needed to slipstream the driver(s) into XP installer using Nlite, a very cool program that will recompile the ISO.

I'm guessing you did see the video?

Well anyway, I got confused on what you said. Can you explain it a bit more simplier?

I think I'll need a step-by-step.

And mine is a Gateway KAV60
What other things do you need?

You need to put the XP storage controller for your model computer into the XP installer so it can work right.

This requires a floppy disk in XP. If you don't have a floppy disk you need to download and install Nlite.

Load the XP files into Nlite, then on the drivers tab, add the XP storage controller, then on the Create ISO tab, make an ISO to write to your flash stick again

Also reboot the computer and enter BIOS setup by tapping F-key given (normally F2)

Look for SATA controller and see if it is set to AHCI, SATA, IDE or RAID.

Do I click Windows XP when it asks me which operating system? And then what do I do?

You need the XP storage controller, but might as well also download the chipset, graphics and LAN, any others you don't wanna have to add later after install. Put them on your card, and then slipstream them into installer using Nlite

I'll PM you the serial number, and then you can tell me what to download, because I would just end up downloading everything. lol

I was wondering you might need my devices.

Download and install Nlite

Make a copy of XP files and load the copy into Nlite on the second screen:

Multi-boot/Dual-Boot Windows XP on Windows 7-nlite1.png

Next select the tasks you want: Drivers and Make ISO

Multi-boot/Dual-Boot Windows XP on Windows 7-nlite2.png

Use the button at bottom right to Insert drivers into ISO. Browse through the driver folder until Nlite picks it up and lists it correctly

Click the button at the middle right to Make ISO. Tell it where to put the ISO it makes.

Locate the ISO and write to flash stick as before. or if you need the files, use the ones which you made a copy of as the drivers will be slipstreamed into those files.
