1. This is an internal hard drive?
2. By "built with SATA" do you mean the Maxtor drive is a Sata drive and thats how it is currently plugged in?
3. What do you mean plugged it into the PCI card?
Just covering the basics to start with.

If I read the post right, I believe he is attempting to install XP on a sata hard drive that is connected to a sata pci card. Being 6 years old, I do not believe that computer had sata on the board.
I am not quite sure how to proceed. XP does not recognize sata drives until you install their drivers using F6 during install. Since the drive is connected to a card, I suspect those drivers need to be installed 1st. I'm not quite sure how. There might be a pci boot option in bios, and then it might ask for the sata card driver CD so they can be loaded. (This is just a hunch though).
