Default Formatting new drive

I just built a new pc with a new sata wd 250gb hard drive. Every time I try to install xp, I get an error during formating of my partition. I have tried it several times using different sized partions all with the same results. Any ideas?

I'm going to tell you what I was told.
Download Powermax that may do the trick.
