I have a multiboot system and disk management in other OS's than XP show the disk correctly (same as Easeus in XP). Does anyone have any suggestions on what could or should be done other than reformatting the whole disk?

  1. Your link to the screenshots doesn't work (not for me anyhow).
    Same in three different web browsers.

    What I see is that on the second HD you have an empty logical partition of 230GB (green w/o drive letter) and you have 6 partitions plus an unallocated space of 268GB on that HD... But Win XP can only make 4 partitions total per HD.. so you must have partitioned the HD from Win 7/8. To see the whole disk space in Win XP you need to partition it from XP, or merge some partitions to have only 4 partitions per Hard Disk... WXP can see the 6 partitions and unallocated space but not read them correctly.

    Other partitions in the 300GB HD also have issues... they should all read as "Healthy"
    Correction: I had missed that you have Linux partitions in the 3rd HD
