Hi there,
Before anyone comments asking why, it is for nostalgia and I suppose better performance (Maybe). (I'm really looking for an answer not why).

I am looking to install either 32 or 64 bit Windows XP pro on my Acer Aspire E14 (E5-411-C9KS), simply for nostalgia and maybe better performance, (I might even do a dual boot)

I have seen other posts about using nlite or similar to add custom SCSI/Sata drivers into the setup and before anyone suggests, I can't change my hard drive mode from AHCI to IDE or vise-versa. It's a bit of a stubborn laptop if you ask me but, I'm currently using legacy mode and not UEFI.

Does anyone know how to install Windows XP? Because I have followed numerous tutorials of adding Sata drivers or whatever (but it doesn't work). If maybe someone could give me the right drivers for my laptop then I might have better luck.

The specs:
Intel Celeron N2840 (2.16 GHz)
4 GB DDR3L Memory (I upgraded from 2 GB)
120 GB SSD (Upgraded from 500 GB HDD)
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (Using legacy BIOS mode)

Thanks,
Dan
