Petition not xp compatible

Had a nightmare over the weekend where my 80gb system disc died a death. Clunk Clunk no more kind of death.
Fitted a new 160gb disc into vista system. new disc was out of an xp system. Formatted disc and created a partition. when I went to install it came up that the partition was not xp compatible and to delete partition and create a new one. Did this on numerous occassions but same thing happens.
can some one please advise.
I do have vista mobo drivers installed, so could this be the cause.
