    all you need is the xp installation disc. it has a partitioner on it.

    well there is no point in formating your hard drive unless you have a operating system to install on it. so you should find one to install.

    The only thing you can do is, defragment your system hard drive. In windows xp, just open "my computer" then right click on your system hard drive(usually c:), next pick properties, open the "tools" tab, now click on the defragment box. Defragment will move all your data back to where it's suppose to be(right next to each other), instead of being all over the hard drive. Maybe this will help you out.
