Food for thought, exploration:

Some of the driver from Intel (just for example) labeled for 32 bit Windows 7 ***might*** work on XP. You could look at modding the INF files, if you go that far take a look at the 'Signature =' lines.

You will need the latest bios, these SATA drivers, CABARC or cabpack 1.4, NTLite, WinSetupFromUsb 1.8, Dietmar's ACPI.sys, and a flash drive https://www.win-raid.com/t22f45-Guide-Integration-of-Intels-AHCI-RAID-drivers-into-a-Windows-XP-W-k-W-k-CD.html (SATA drivers) https://msfn.org/board/applica...
