With newer (less than 2 years old) notebooks that originally were sold with Vista installed it's very difficult to install XP. You're on the right track looking for the correct drivers. The problem is that the drivers you need may not have ever been produced by HP since HP never sold that model with XP, they never made any XP drivers.

There numerous threads on the internet about people trying to install XP.

Perhaps this one will help.

How about entering BIOS setting it to IDE mode instead of AHCI
You can install the AHCI drivers later after Winxp install suceeds

Are you installing Winxp 32-Bit?

Driver should be ahcix32.sys. You are using the 64bit driver for XP 64bit or Vista 64bit.
