When I format my XP I respect what Xp CD setup prompts, but after I agree with terms and agreements and press F8, there aren't my two partitions but just one, so I can't format just Local Disk C: but I'm obligated to create again two partitions and to lost my data on Local Disk D.

That is only about 1.5 GB available space.

How did you end up in that?

Ok. Good.

Are you doing an in-place upgrade or a reformat and reinstall?

Okay. Now did you have a backup partition that you believe got deleted?

Realistically, you need to create a new partition to add Windows XP on to.

Rescuing this data becomes impossible if you already deleted the partition.

Do you have one or two hard drives?

The partition you try to create will not create itself?

Worth reading, IMO.
