Hi and welcome, some hints you will get here Windows XP Clean install .
2 ways to go ... in BIOS with F2 and step to CONFIG Page set SATA AHCI to compatible... or you have to integrate AHCI Driver as descibed....
Driver you will found here S10-3 Driver XP ***
this will help to ...
*** Edit you didnt say your machine type S12 http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/au/en/driversdownloads/APR_Driver_List.aspx?CategoryID=733830&OS=W... XP

thanks for your reply up to know i have made 4 xp discs using nlite with different drivers and none of them work, i get the blue screen saying files missing which is the sata driver
i have tried this driver
and i downloaded the driver you suggested but it ius a set up file .exe file so i cannot use this with nlite
i just need the driver to add to nlite when i make a bootable iso of the xp image incorporating the driver i need
this guide is good but the drivers they suggest dont work on my lenovo s12
can you give me a link to the exact driver i need to add to my windows xp bootable disc so i can install
this is driving me up the wall
