Trust me, your BIOS is configured incorrectly re: Boot Sequence. As to your SATA drive, you will need drivers for the controller before your system is going to recognize this drive.
I am pretty sure the bios is fine but i have a hdd problem
It appears that there might be a little more to this machine's history than you have conveyed.

Once set correctly, you will be able to boot from a bona fide XP CD and do an installation or repair an existing installation. You will get an F6 prompt during setup which permits you to load SATA drivers. Do you have your original XP CD? Have you installed any service packs since this machine was originally setup? Who originally set this up for you?
