Have a look here click here - read through it all and especially the last post (ie.the bottom of the screen) May be worth a try doing that before things get too complicated.

I solved the problem in a diff way. I used a program ONTRACK manager that I have used in the past to format the HD. It was strange that I didn't get an option that always used b4. It did 23 or 24 partitions and I think that created the problem. I had another copy of that program , I used it and I got the option that formatted the whole HD as a unit. After that I was able to install XP and I was surprised that it took only about 12 minutes. With previos older PCs it usually took 45 min.
