How are you planning on installing XP - from a DVD ? If you are I would just put the disc in the drive and re-boot. It should then boot from the XP disc and carry on to do the install. XP will do any partitioning necessary.
I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

What is the make and model of the computer? Are you saying when you boot the XP install disk it does not detect your hard drive? Was XP originally on the computer?
I have found that using the bootable version of Partition Wizard will almost always detect a hard drive as it's based on the linux kernel. You can burn a CD by right clicking on any Windows 7 or later computer and selecting Burn Disk Image.
As with most 3rd party partition managers all steps are virtual and will not complete until Apply is clicked.

Don't worry about the BartPE. You can do a clean install and delete existing partitions with the XP install disk created from the XP iso file.

You don't have a CD drive? I would create a USB bootable flash drive using the iso file and Rufus.
Run Rufus with the USB flash drive attached. Select MBR partition scheme for BIOS and UEFI. Leave all boxes as checked. Where FreeDos is shown in the dropdown box select iso image, click the icon, and browse to the XP iso file. Press Start. Any data on the flash drive will need to be backed up as the drive will be formatted.
Edit: I have successfully booted the XP iso file from a CD.

Rufus easily creates a bootable USB flash drive using an iso file. I have found that it rarely fails.
Poweriso can create bootable USB flash drives from a bootable iso file?
