Yon,

Your HDD details please..

And, if there might be some tool available from your HDD manufacturer site to enable large disks on XP. Also if you have sp2 ,please do install to enable large disk support.
In disk managment,right click on the unallocated space and format it. Now you have formatted free space.

Good Luck
