You wipe the drive and install the other OS. It's that simple. However, before you attempt it, make sure you have drivers for everything in the machine. Some of the newer computers don't come with XP drivers, so you may have problems finding them. Start by looking at the manufacturer's web site.

Try to disable SATA native mode from BIOS, then reinstall XP. this should work.

Check your the drivers first, because most probably you will never find them
And as ThumbsUp2 said have a clean installation for XP.
But make sure that you have the recovery CD, or make one if you don't have, because you will back to Vista, or simply upgrade to Windows 7
