    You really need an external optical drive to plug into a usb port which you can then boot your xp install disk from. You will also most certainly find that your xp install disk does not support SATA and you will need to provide SATA drivers, probably the having to slipstream them into your XP install. You will find many guides for doing this if you google something like xp slipstream sata drivers.
