    As far as i know Windows XP won`t boot from a USB like Vista does, and only some versions of XP have sata drivers on theOne way round this is to create a slipstreamed disc using a free progam called N-lite.

    You download the latest intel drivers from your motherboard site and then create a disc with the intel drivers on and the XP OS using n-lite, this installs the drivers on the HDD and when the OS installs it can see the sata drive and then installs the OS. If you google `slipstreaming windows xp using n-lite` you will find a guide to do this, it`s easy to do and will take around 30-45 mins to do the disc.

    No the usb drive is for him to supply the OS install the driver for ahci mode. Not to install the OS onto.
    From another computer copy the drivers needed for the ahci mode to usb drive. Then insert usb drive into this computer boot off cd press F6 when it says to some how brows to usb drive to find drivers say ok then you will be able to select your HDD to install the OS onto.

    XP you must put the F6 drivers on a floppy or slipstream them, you cannot put them on USB for XP

    Also see here for folder structure notes for XP Drivers via F6
