This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
The most likely reason for this is an incompatibility in the BIOS. Unless your using XP with at least SP2 it won't recognise the drive if it's SATA, without an additional driver.
If the version of XP you're using does not have SP2 or SP3 slipstreamed, I'd check the settings in the BIOS and see if there is an option to set the drive type to IDE. Also check for AHCI settings and set those to IDE.
Personally, if you just want to remove Windows 7 and install XP, download GParted burn it to a CD or USB, boot from the CD/USB, repartition the notebook and install XP.
