    Use a boot disk, or the WinXP cd... if the cd is yer choice, select system recovery, that will bring up an DOS-prompt. Just type "format ?:" there... /where "?" is you target drive, of course! :)

    I used Win98

    I re-formatted and partitioned recently and used my WIN98 boot disk to perform this. I could not (due to my ignorance) find a way to make the appropriate XP boot disk. Microsoft's download website has a download is for some type of boot disk (for XP home and pro) but I have not fooled with it.

    just use a boot disk from win 98, u can find one at Bootdisk.com
    and then format your c:. and afterward type fdisk /mbr to restore a proper mbr. this should fix your prob
