I ran into this trying to install our standard XP SP3 image on a group of new Optiplex 760s. FIrst thing was that Bart blue screened because AHCI was set in BIOS from the factory. Here's what I did, from my notes. The reference to a folder "\d\o\ich10ahci" is a folder in the installed image to which the files in the Intel Matrix Storage Driver (downloaded from Intel) have been extracted. The version of the driver for the Optiplex 760 is
English: IATA89ENU.exe Download
Ver:220.127.116.113 Date:7/17/2009 Size:6935 (KB)
and icludes the following files for 32 bit XP:
06/15/2009 07:22 AM 8,654 iaAHCI.cat
06/04/2009 06:33 PM 8,773 iaAHCI.inf
06/15/2009 07:52 AM 7,962 iaStor.cat

Change these before booting to Bartpe
Remove floppy drive from boot device sequence
Change boot device sequence to DVD, then HDD
Change SATA Operation from AHCI to ATA, or Bart blue screens.
[Install the image]
The SATA operation setting must be set to ATA in order to boot both the BartPe and imaged Windows, because neither contains AHCI drivers. After the PC has been imaged, installing the AHCI drivers may provide a performance boost due to native command queuing support.
