It sounds like your leaving your Installation Disk in the drive. Take that out and run safe mode, then just plug in your flash drive as normal and it should detect it and you can copy your files to it. If not, use s CD and burn the files you need on them then you can proceed with Wiping the drive. If this fails, Install XP but there is a option to not have the drive formatted thus this keeps all files in tact. Reinstall XP like this, take the files you need and then reformat and reinstall XP and you should be fine. After doing all this, run a virus scan and have it run regularly because it may have been a virus that caused the problem to begin with.
Hope This Helps

Sounds like you've tried everything except a complete reinstall. If there is information you need off that computer the hard drive will need to be taken out and plugged into another PC as a second hard drive then all can be copied. Then try a complete reinstall and good luck with that. If any problems doing a reinstall i would look at the ram. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Ok-Go to Safe Mode-any-click on start menu-run:msconfig-hit enter-click on restore option-choose date-go! If you can't do that, on boot you machine should tell you what other option you have-like"push ESC button to aces setup" or something like that. Hit that button and go to RESTORE function.Good luck and Happy Holidays!

SOURCE: i am trying to format
While formating the system you must be careful about a few points. First and foremost is to take the backup of the important data. You should have the Operating System, required software and especially Drivers of the system if you prefer to completely format the system. In this case, it is better to format the system (or C: drive) from windows setup and reinstall the Operating System, software and drivers etc.
From command prompt you can format the drives other than C: which usually has the operating system. The steps/ command to format the D: drive for instance are as under: -
1. Open Command Prompt.
2. Type C:\ and press Enter.
3. Type 'format D:
This will format the D: Drive and wip all the Data.
Alternatively, you can format the drives from the Windows Operating System by right-clicking the drive and choosing 'Format' to wipe the drive you wish to format. It is a safer method as it is visual as compared to DOS prompt. Please note that formating the drive will delete the data on that partition/disk.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Boot to the Windows Recovery Environment (WINRE) for 7 and run the following commands from the command prompt:
compact /u c:\
compact /u c:\*.*
This will resolve the issue as the boot loader will no longer be flagged to be compressed, will uncompressed, and then rebuilt.
