Windows XP doesn't support SATA controllers with AHCI or RAID capability and the controller needs to be switched to IDE, Legacy, or Compatible Mode in the BIOS to work with Windows XP OR you must provide the proper SATA driver via a floppy disc or slipstreaming the drivers onto a custom Windows XP disc.


Have you looked to see if Lenovo provides drivers for Windows XP for that model? Certain things will not work or work properly with what is now becoming an obsolete operating system, for example AHCI, 4KB hard drives, SSD's, USB 3.0, and much more. If you really can't stand Windows 8, even after adding the Start button back so it's pretty much an enhanced Windows 7, then Windows 7 would be feasible downgrade.
