Enter BIOS setup and desable AHCI suport, or...
Download the drivers needed to support AHCI...Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver", iaStor.sys.
Save the files to floppy or integrate them to the XP installation disk.
While XP setup boots you will be asked if you want to load some RAID drivers and press F2 (I think) to load them from the floppy.

But much easyer way to go thru this is by desabling the AHCI support during the installation of XP.
Once you install XP, install all the drivers needed and enable it again.

You can download all the drivers you need from here:

Just select your model.

I have an Esprimo Mobile V5505, does anybody know if it is possible to install XP pro in place of Vista home premium, and if so do I have to obtain any extra drivers and where can I get these if needed, please. Vista make this so slow even with 2GB memory.
