More about :delete recreate partitions running windows setup
So, U have windows xp installed, U can get inside windows if U want, but when U boot from cd and want to reinstall it, then you get the error?Or not?
It could be a hard drive failure, a corrupted OS , etc.
A few things to try:
Boot from cd, press r for recovery console, type 1, type password and press enter, or just press enter if U don't have password.
Type chkdsk /f /r and press enter. Let it scan.
U can also :
Check hard drive settings in bios
Reset bios to default
what type of hard drive do U have? Because U may need to put drivers on the cd.
About the format and partitioning, U could try recovery console again:
for aditional help, type
to format drive, type:
format X:\ /q
X is the drive U want to format, q means quick
type diskpart /? to see all options
U can add , delete, etc
