You will to have to disable secure boot mode, it's also known as UEFI Boot mode, here are the steps...

Step 1: Tap F2 or F12 key on the Dell logo or hold down F2 or F12 just after you start up your Dell laptop (At this point the screen is still black.) Soon you will see the BIOS screen.
Step 2: Next, highlight the Boot tab with arrow keys, change the Secure Boot item to "Disabled".
Step 3: Afterwards, ensure that the Load Legacy Option Rom is "Enabled" and the Boot List Option is "Legacy"
disable secure boot

Step 4: Switch to Exit tab, highlight Exit Saving Changes, and highlight Yes to save the BIOS settings.
Note: You can also press F10, select Yes, press Enter to save the settings.
Then your Dell will restart. At this time, you have disabled the Secure Boot function on your Dell successfully. And you will be able to boot your Dell from CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, USB flash drive, etc.

To load windows xp follow these steps

1. Insert your windows xp CD or bootable USB device.

2. Restart your system and press f12 immediately the system comes up, it will display your boot options.

3. Once you see the boot options select your boot location which is either CD ROM or bootable USB device

4. Select it and follow follow the necessary instructions..

Windows Xp SUPPORT IS ENDED and XP isn't support new Hardware configuration, So, Xp is not good choice for new Hardware , try windows 7 / Vista. btw if you still want to install XP on i5/i7 processer then you need to secure mode off, legacy on and convert GPT partition scheme to MBR partition , that is only possible if cleanup full hard disk ,that means you need delete all partition on hard disk .

Mr. brendaniel already explain you how to preform legacy on? how to install? check this link
