Do you have an XP cd? Is the system licensed OEM for XP or did you purchase a XP Copy?

The drives for the system once XP has been installed are located here:

you most likely need to have the SATA driver when installing XP - there is a moment when it says at the bottom of the screen hit F6 to load drivers - that's when you need to have a floppy drive and the SATA Drivers on a floppy ready to go ...

Here is your laptop specs:

Go here and download sata controller:

Also download nLite to slipstream XP and add sata controller:

So XP installation will pick up the sata drive and continue installing.
