Dell 4700 SATA drive and format&install

I wanted to format my Dell4700 and reload windows xp from the supplied disc.
I was getting as far as picking a partition for the install but the machine no longer finds my HD.
After some reading at the web site it seems I have to load RAID drivers then continue with set up. I done this but I am still unable to pick a partition to install windows.
Any help would be appreciated.

Error code:
setupdd.sys Address F84ccc78 base at F84A3000 Datestamp 3d6dd67f
This comes up after a screen telling me the drive info and that the HD can't be used.


Thought this may be needed to help me.
These details are on a blue halt page so i can't go any further with the install.

Just going to pick resolved for this post. It seems that the HD (Maxator 120g) has a write error so it will need to be replaced......again
