AHCI + Windows XP setup

I have the the floppy disk to install before Windows but, when I have my BIOS set to have SATA work in AHCI mode, after I pick the driver to load and it wants me to pick where to install Windows it comes up with "disk drive not found" then it just wants to restart.
Is there a way to work around this? I have an XP SP2 disc.
