    if you want to install Xp on your computer, you need to change Sata Controller in Bios ,,Compatible,, otherwise you will meet a blue screen during installation. It's because of AHCI drivers Then after installation, you can download and install Storage Manager and return AHCi mode in Bios. You can also integrate them into Windows disk.

    The Win XP installation is not very tricky…
    As mentioned by Jeka set the SATA mode from AHCI to Compatible.
    This will allows you to install the Windows without installing SATA drivers.

    After that you can follow with driver installation.
    Satellite L500-14F belongs to the PSLJTE series and all Win XP drivers can be found on the Toshiba European driver page!!!

    I recommend installing the drivers in following order:
    Chip Set Utility
    Display Driver
    LAN Driver
    Modem Driver
    Wireless Lan Driver
    Touch Pad Driver Alps Electric and Synaptics
    Sound Driver
    Webcam driver
    Controls Driver
    Zooming Utility Driver
    Zooming Utility
    SD Utilities
    Power Saver Driver
    Power Saver
    DVD Player
    Hardware Setup
