Hello everyone, I want to install Windows XP Pro 64bit on my HP Pavilion 15-n009se as Ubuntu has been crashing a lot. And I've been searching for hours to get the 500GB SATA drive show in the installation. I've tried adding Universal drivers suggested on this article and another file package "f6flpy3286". But it crashes on the drives page wth BSD or wont load. Please help with finding the correct drivers, I'm too frustrated right now.

Windows XP 32 or 64 bit will absolutely not install or run on your model.
There is zero XP driver support for the Intel Series 8 chipset which is why nothing is working for you.

There were not many XP 64bit drivers written, they are very rare, one reason 64bit xp was never widely adopted.
You might look in the bios for a setting that disables ahci or something similar to allow the hard drive to be detected during XP setup.
another possiblity, driver packs may have the driver you need, if it does not then it probably does not exist because one was never written for xp 64bit.

You're very welcome.
As I posted yesterday, there are no sata achi or raid drivers for windows XP for the Intel Series 8 chipset.
Support for XP ends with the series 7 chipset, so unless you have a PC where you can change the sata controller emulation to IDE in the BIOS, XP will not install on any PC with an Intel series 8 chipset.
There would also be no Intel HD graphics driver for XP on any Intel series 8 chipset based PC either.

I cannot allow anyone using this information directly or indirectly to do any Hararm act (described here) , so please... There's a very good news for anyone who's still working on it, and trying to get it to work. I have successfully installed Windows XP Professional 32bit/64bit on the system by including the "modded" Intel AHCI/RAID drivers" in the installation CD, I downloaded from win-raid.com/t11f23-Modded-Intel-AHCI-and-RAID-Dri
