Is it posible to install xp on a sata drive?

Yes, there are a couple of ways.
First would be to have the drivers for the SATA controller, failing that you need to go in to the BIOS & look at the SATA configuration. It is probably set to AHCI, if so you need to set it to legacy or something similar.

Oh yes definitely.

Sata Drives has been around since the early 2000s and not new technology by any means.

One must only have the Chipset Driver for the motherboard and all the rest of the Machine Device Drivers.

Have to slipstream the XP Chipset Motherboard Driver in the installation CD in most cases now.
