There is no edition of SQL Server 2012 that will install on Windows XP. You could install earlier versions of SQL Server on XP OR You can upgrade your OS to one that is compatible with SQL Server 2012. Have you thought about using virtualisation software to create a VM on your XP computer that could have a more recent OS so that you can install SQL Server 2012 on that?

You could install Virtual Box from Oracle and install Windows 7 32 bit on it to then be able to install SQL 2012. If would prefer to install a version of SQL that is supported on Windows XP then you can download Express Edition of SQL 2005, 2008 or 2008R2. Express Edition is free. Personally I would opt for 2008R2 Developer which is licensed but very cheap. Sites like CDW.COM list it between $35 and $50.
