    Boot the XP CD and delete existing partition(s) and create new one(s). Then format using NTFS.

    Those tools are built-in to the XP installer.

    try using FAT32 instead of NTFS, or vice-versa, ive had problems like that with my old computers hard drive, but i always end up converting to NTFS after its finished installing.

    Can you tell us what the error code is? it might be able to help us find whats worng.

    try installing again using the oposite file system you used last time (unless u already tried both) and if you still get the error you have to tell us what it says.

    Try using a win98 start up disk first. Run fdisk. Then reboot with winxp cd and you should be set to start formatting.
