    Just tell it to make a partition on the partition XP is currently on/on the HDD XP is already on, after it just asks if you really want to re-partition as it erases the old one, say yes. :)

    Yeah. Delete the old partition, format the HD, and make a new partition.

    No what you can do is that before you do what i said, it tells you there's already one there, and asks if you just want to repair it or make a new partition. If you choose new it should just erase the partition already there and make a new one.
