If this is true and it is a IDE drive and XP still BSoD's during install then there are other drivers which you need that do not come with a 9 year old OS on a 1 year old Netbook. So you will have to get ALL drivers from the Asus Site and try to slipstream them onto the disk to see if that will help the install along. If not you will have to contact Asus to see if and how they got it working.

This isnt a factor. As stated by the OP above, it is a IDE Drive not SATA so ACHI is not a factor.
Moved to proper area. We have a area specifically for Netbooks. Please use it.
