Go here and download this file

It would be much easier if you knew which SATA Controller you had as you could download the driver directly from the maker or you can open the box look at the M'Board and see who makes it and what model it is and download the driver from the M'Board maker.

After it is downloaded you can unzip it and copy the XP Driver to the Root of a Floppy or whatever to install when you setup the computer. At the very first Blue Screen press the F6 key and wait till the system finishes scanning the attached hardware and when prompted insert the SATA Driver disk and allow the system to load from there.
