As it says in the topic, those instructions are for Vista or later, which have native AHCI drivers. To be able to operate a SATA drive with XP, you'll need to obtain the XP SATA drivers for your SATA controller. Unless the SATA is on an expansion board, this will mean identifying which motherboard controller the drive will be using (or the board may have only one controller), downloading and installing the SATA driver. Then when the BIOS setting is changed to AHCI, the SATA driver will be present to let Windows access the drive.
If you need further assistance to source the appropriate drivers, let us know the details of the computer system, or publish a snapshot using Speccy.
