No AHCI BIOS error when loading XP

  1. This may have been posted before but I am looking for some help.

    I have a computer that just got brand new. No software or anything. I am trying to load windows and there was a bios PW on the PC. So I removed the battery like a dummy and now I am able to get into the BIOS but I cant load windows.

    It is a Fujistu Siemens computer with a CYAN S2696 mobo. 3gb RAM and SATA drives. Now it had XP or some form on the computer before and the HDs are clean now.
    I tried to DL a floppy to F6 on install and no lucky.
    I am using the sata ports should I be using the raid ports?
    Dp / Wc, Gc + ESB2E, 2XEON, 8FDIMM, Eatx, 6 SATA,-3G Raid, 1394A, Rohs


    Anyway if someone can point me t othe right place or help me out that would be awesome. I just want to get this up and running and load XP on it.

    thanks
    J
