What was in it before you formatted it and installed XP?

What did you use to install it? A new, retail version cd or an oem full version cd?

You may have put too many partitions in. I think the maximum amount on any one hard drive is three.

I would begin looking at hardware issues if it is a new format and "last known good configuration" option in boot menu dosen't work. you can easily download a mem test, and a hard drive diagnostic (manufacturer specific) from the internet. these will provide you with a decent software test. It differs from a "post" mem test, and a scandisk in that it will check all addresses and all sectors and re-certify the drive/memory. you do have too many partitions, why do you want them? was your drive formatted properly with NTFS when you installed the OS? If you need either "memtest86" or HDD diag tool, e-mail me with HDD manufacturer and i will send them to you, they run off a floppy.
