    first bob, try to find out what Brand/Model of Sata HD do you have install
    and get the driver for Windows XP from manufacturer website,
    second there is a program call NLite it will allow you to create a Copy of
    your XP CD and ADD the Sata driver to this copy and then burn it the CD and
    you can use this CD and it will recognize yout hard drive
    google for Nlite
    NLite it is free and you can get it from www,
    try it and good luck
    PS: before you install XP do an inventory of your Laptop Hardware from the
    system devices, sometimes not all the drivers for Vista are available for
    XP, make sure you do this before you change it
