The problem you're running into is that XP does not have built in AHCI support for the drive controller in the laptop, you'll have to slipstream them into an install cd using something like nLite. If its an intel chipset they're relatively easy to find. As for win7, have you tried XP mode and not compatibility? XP Mode is supposed to be a full virtual XP environment basically a VM within W7? this might the easier alternative.
