Xp Install On A Vista Machine

By nathan ·
I recently purchased a new Sony Vaio laptop with Vista Business pre-installed for work.
I want to install XP over Vista but when i get to the install screen and select the install XP option, i get an error message saying that there are no hard drives plugged in, and the set-up ends.
I have spent hours trying to get XP to install but am at my wits end with it now!
Hopefully there's someone on here who can help me
