Subject Installing winXP onto sata drive (I got drivers but still wont work)

As you can tell by the title I am trying to install windows XP onto a computer.
The computer is simple with a SATA hard drive. I have gotten a windows XP iso and have done everything required to start trying to install it. It works but when I start the installing after I choose on the easy2boot to do the first step I go and make sure to add the SATA drivers so it won't give me a BSOD. I add the following. WinVBlock 32-bit FiraDisk 32-bit as well as for my AHCI driver Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller. This is the driver that everyone on google seems to use to install Windows XP. Than says starting the setup and at the bottom left says "Examining 305243 MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on ahcix80x. . ." then the computer turns off and well nothing happens. I can't disable SATA in the bios because it won't let me. I don't know what to do because it seems whatever I do it crashes because of my SATA hard drive. :(
