Default windows XP installation problem

well i formated my hard-drive and even low-level formated my hd. But now when I try to install windows xp it says there is an internal process error and that it can not find a swap file. Also the reason i think its my comp is so screwed is cause my partition table is messed up. I use disk genius for a partition manager program. Which can also be found at www.diskgenius.com
Can some1 help me put back my partition table back together and tell me what to do thx guys.

If you formatted there is no swap file...... Reformate and get ride of everything this time.

hit a key to boot from the xp cd.

use powermax in my signature to wipe your hard drive clean, then reinstall windows

You can use a win98boot disk also and after its all loaded run fdisk to delete all partitions and creat a new active dos partition that is if your having a problem using the win xp disk.
