    Perhaps as you have a SATA disk and you try to format with a CD version of XP first.
    If your are not finding SATA drive then you may also other option of floppy drive, with the SATA drivers for your motherboard you should indicate in the installation process by pressing F6 during one of the first screens of the boot on the installation CD (c is marked at the bottom of the screen).

    This procedure is to follow with some motherboard even with versions of XP SP2 included.

    You should be having the procedure list available when you have purchased your motherboard Look in the documentation of the motherboard to have the procedure.
    Confer with the CD provided with your motherboard or the manufacturer's website to get the drivers.
    There you will find the copy of some files to a floppy disk that you must insert in the drive during installation.
