Cannot install Windows XP on HP Elitebook 8460p laptop (HELP)

Hi,
I have a new laptop which I need to put Windows XP on.  It's a HP Elitebook 8460p and came with Windows 7 Pro already installed.  I have tried the WinXP install and it starts the installation process and then I get a blue screen of death, I have tried an alternative XP cd and this gets a little futher, no blue screen but just hangs on 'Windows is starting' I have checked this laptop on the HP website and there are available drivers for XP so a little confused why this is happening?
Thanks

Are you using a Slipstreamed XP CD with SATA drivers on it?
have you tried changing the Hard Drive settings in the BIOS from AHCI to IDE?
