Try formatting / partitioning the drive with windows xp setup / installation cd. If you are trying to format or delete partition in windows and its your c: drive you will not be able to do that.

    You Can NOT format your hard drive in windows. Use windows installation cd to perform the format, it is not possible in windows if this is your only drive and you have your windows installed on this drive.

You can Reformat the system and REMOVE all partitions. Windows setup will create a new partition from available drive space. If you need to save your data,You can also use a utility like partition Magic and resize the partition. There is a trial version available at no charge. just google "partition magic"

Have you tried booting from a Windows XP CD? If you have one available you can boot from it, delete the partition and format it. Works all the time for me.
