Boot with the XP cd. During the install process there will be a point when you will have to hit F6 to install the sata drivers. Of course you need the sata drivers already before you start the process.

If you post the exact model of the notebook I can point you in the direction of the drivers you'll need to have windows recognize your hard drive on setup.
