gzp: see if you can find someone locally that has a Windows CD and ask if you can borrow it, then just start the setup off that CD then insert your XP upgrade Disk

don't reinstall, it can be fixed

put in the XP CD on boot, go to recovery and type del C:\boot.ini
then type edit.com (which is a DOS text editor) and make a new boot.ini with this in it:
[boot loader]
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Home Edition/Professional" /fastdetect

i think the reason why it wont format (using the recovery disks) is cuz its trying to recover to [C:] which has almost no space cuz i resized [D:] is there a way to make it so it uses [D:] instead of [C:] or to re-size [C:] and delete [D:]
