Can't Install XP ++ Dual Boot

Sometimes, some laptop can't installed XP...When we are boot using Windows XP installation DVD/CD, the message will show "No Hard Disk Detected"...
Here some simple way....
-->When your computer are started, press F2 to enter advanced setup or BIOS setup...
-->Then go to SATA mode...changed form AHCI to IDE or to ATA....
-->Then restart your computer with the DVD installatuon, boot using it
-->Thats all, you will be able to install XP...

Okay, let say you already have VIsta installed first on your First Partition.
Then you install XP on the other partition..After you finished installed XP, you will not be able to boot into Vista back because the boot loader for vista and XP is different...
Here the way;
-->Insert DVD/CD Vista, boot using it....
-->When you are boot using it, search for option to "Repair Your Computer"
-->Proceed until next screen, until it gave you some option, select "Repair startup"
-->then after finished, reboot...then you will able to boot into your own Vista directly
-->At this time, you does not given any option to boot to XP
-->Then,in Windows VIsta,In command Prompt
-->type;
bcdedit -set {ntldr} device partition=C:
bcdedit -set {ntldr} path \ntldr
bcdedit -displayorder {ntldr} -addlast
bcdedit -edit {ntldr} description "Windows XP"
