What means of installing XP did you use?

If you have XP installed and can use it...you can create/format additional partitions, using Disk Management.

I checked again and no drives, not even c:,The only one showing is the CD-ROM 0 DVD. The drive shows in device manager, and the partitions in my computer but will not format. I downloaded a utility from western digital and it shows all the drives as virtual, c,f,g,h. Can some body help me with this.
