I don't know why you want XP, maybe to play older native game? Old programs but if that's your goal here is an Idea. Put windows 10 on your current parts and look for an older used computer maybe from 2010 or so and you will have less headaches and put XP on that.

I find XP machines all the time used for $10.00 with awesome FOR XP parts.

I found the drivers for amd ahci but it will just not work. And the reason I wanna install Windows XP to my pc is that my Windows XP gaming pc is dead and I need to play some old games.

If you found XP drivers for amd ahci for the MSI B450m PRO-M2 MAX please share the link so we can have a look.
Also you might need the chipset drivers or other sata drivers if ahci is not enough.

Your best bet is to find an older mobo that supports WinXP. There are hundreds of them out there. Look for one that supports the Intel Quad core cpus Socket 775 and 4 GB RAM. Then find a video card that supports WinXP. Good luck.
