Did you check for the disk, it should be connected to the IDE controller. I'm talking about the OS disk.
If it is on the other controller then move it to the IDE controller.

Also give us details like what type of BSOD you are getting. A screenshot will be helpful.

Also if you are not seeing the BSOD press F8 and select option disable restart after system failure.

Also in the physical machine check if it is on other controller. Verify IDE controller registry key as well. Driver must be in the windows/system32/drivers folder

See below link for different type of controller key and its driver.

Can you also try Disk2vhd  and then host it on Hyper-V on your Windows 8 machine.

Also check if your XP machine is an OEM version, because you may have difficulties with the Activation.

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) versions
