Install a partition manager program like
http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm open it and you will see the entire hard disk. In there either create another partition in the unallocated space or add it to the D partition.
it seems as serious disk drive error
to try fixing any errors that may be present on drive please run from command prompt [as admin] cd /D <faulty drive letter>
then chkdsk /r if asks to unmount <or scan after reboot if it is sys disk> say Yes <lonely Y also does the job>
this should fix the trouble, if not please send message
a clean xp installation does not recognize sata drives at all. you can either use nlite to build a custom install cd, press f6 during setup to load additional drivers, try to change your sata mode from native to compatible in your bios or use your restore cds.
Actually there is no solution, the hard drive is bad. What I ended doing was recording the partition in iso. ( I had a Factory Partition) Got a new hard drive 160G scorpio unfortunately it does not come with installation disc. Installed Vista, and with vista created a partition and then installed the contents of the factory partition.
