Answers :

If your laptop is like mine, it'll have a setting in Bios that needs to be changed in order to support XP.
In my laptop, there was a setting called Native SATA driver or something similar of that nature.
It took me quite some time to go through forums in order to find that out. Once that setting was changed, the notebook found the hard drive and I was able to install Windows XP.
