    You should have formatted it from FDISK and then installed xp( the installation cd is bootup disk as well).
    What is happening now is that some files of the previos version are conflicting with the newer installation, resulting in that kinda change.
    I suggest you bootup with a floppy disk or the cd and format the drive followed by a simple windows installation. 8)

    Hi,
    if you dont wants to re-install and managed all the things again , and if your filesystem is NTFS compressed it , or run convert c: /fs:ntfs to convert existing file system to convert into ntfs

    :)
    Regards
