You have a Maxtor HD and the installation disk for XP Home?

Whatever you have actually done is certainly not as expected.

Can you boot from a "Maxblast3 floppy" ---(download from the maker's site and put the result on a floppy)--- and try and partition and clear the HD with that?

Once that is done you should be able to install from the XP CD.

You need to remove Max Blast with the Software you put it on with before Windows can do anything with the Drive. If you cannot figure it out reinstall Max blast

Narrowed down to one of the alternatives, you could see if this "strikes a bell somewhere" and try it.

Some manufacturers have special BIOS instructions and ways of recovery which though meant to make it simple, just sometimes have the opposite result!
