Default Attempted To Reinstall XP - 'No Drive Found' error.

The laptop boots up into XP just fine. But there are a few error messages and a bunch of junk on the computer so I decided it would be easier for me to reinstall Windows XP.

So I booted off a XP cd. It went thru the setup preparation.

After the preparation, the setup shows all the drives on the computer (there is only C) and it prompts me to press enter to install a fresh copy to that drive.

Upon pressing Enter, I get the message that "No Drives Found, aborting setup"

I cant seem to get around this.

Any ideas?
