Raid drivers are not included in XP disc. You can use a third party program like nlite to integrate the drive in XP iso file and burn it.

OR

Can boot to bios- change the hard drive mode from raid to ide. Save changes to bios. Boot from XP disc you will be able to install windows XP.


Nothing wrong with your computer hardware. ..just the raid options.

OR

If your XP setup CD is SP2 ready, try to slipstream SP3 into your XP setup CD.

Details are in the link below.

You must go in BIOS and disable SATA NATIVE MODE, even with XP SP3

I had this problem with all my HP Laptops
I hope this helps

Your better off getting the correct drivers than simply changing the BIOS to IDE/ATA/Compatibility mode, wherein you lose everything that makes your SATA drive better than the old IDE drives.

If you need more help finding the right driver, then what is the exact model of your Satellite?

nLite is by far the easiest tool for getting the storage drivers into your install media, but you can also use a USB floppy drive if you have one, and hit F6 during Windows Setup.
