GA-J1800N-D2H unable to install Windows XP.

I have bought board. But i have a big problem, i can't install windows xp.
I get a blue screen error (In general the error message talks about ACPI.sys), just after charge drivers.
I cant create partitions or format hard drive.

Windows 7 run without problems.

My board has bios version F2.

First i have changed AHCI to IDE mode in BIOS SETUP (although i have sata drivers on the installation CD)
Second. I tried Press F5 during installation, to choose different abstraction layer, nothing happend.
Third. Now i'm trying to perform a downgrade to BIOS ver F1.

Help me, please.
