You can not format C from within Windows.

What did you download that you have to format? Maybe we can fix that?

As for the answer follow my guide i wrote up:

Installing Windows XP - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

It gives you detailed instructions along with pictures.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
