I think that deleting a partition has got your system out of a state of grace.

I hope you've got your important data backed up and it wasn't on the partition you deleted.

I would boot from the CD and completely reformat the HDD. That means using FDISK to set up a single partition (NTFS) to become the C: drive. Then Format the disk. Then use the CD to install your operating system.

You boot from the Windows XP CD and drive SETUP.EXE from the command line assuming the disk is now NTFS formatted.
