try to boot your machine using window 98 startup disk or window 98 bootable CD. then type fdisk on DOS prompt. Then try to delete non dos partation and the create primary dos partation. Restart your machine, let it start window or the floppy until it return to dos prompt. Then you can type the format c: e.g a:\format c: or D:\format c:. After that try to run window xp.

Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.
Create MS-DOS bootable diskette
When formatting a floppy diskette, users have the option of creating a MS-DOS startup disk, follow the below steps to do this.
