Kiran,
\015\012i thought you have SATA interface, in that case your XP will not be able to access your HDD. But now as you told there is no option for SATA means you don't have SATA interface in your motherboard and the problem might be in your HDD.

  1. So, check out your HDD connection from motherboard and try to install again if no luck then do the following step.
  2. \015\012
  3. If you have important data/files on your HDD make a backup copy. Then make try to delete all partition and make new partition, then proceed further installation OR if you have recovery disk try to use it to recover your system as factory setting.
