Formating Primary HDD

Specs: Windows XP, 3 gb
Hey guys, I always get physical memory dump problem (blue screen with yellow/white writings if im not mistaken) during gaming or surfing the net. So i thought my window is not properly install or something.

So I reinstalled WINDOW XP. I have got 2 HDD, both 500 GB. C:\ is the primary and F:\ is the secondary i assumed (before install). However, I accidentally installed the WINDOW in F:\ (I dont know how), and I tried to format F:\ during the setup of Window. But it shows me F:\ contains some temporary setup files etc you cannot delete it.. So well, I tried install WINDOW in C:\ then try delete the partition in F:\..during setup of WINDOW (couldnt even create partition in F:) but it still wont work. And i tried right click in the disk drive F: in MY COMPUTER (boot from C: window xp), and quick format it. Wouldnt work. And i tried CMD- format F:, and it said unable to format as well.. I saw some help from nets. they said use a floopy disk and stuff.. but my computer doesnt have a floopy disk drive.. so please help >.< I tried delete my F:\ by highlighting everything in it.. ( i know it wont work totally, but its empty inside when i open the HDD but in fact 3GB from F: was used up) I also tried PARTITION MAGIC, it wont allow me to click on delete partition or create. Also, I tried right click on MY COMPUTER then manage etc, couldnt delete partition of F: as well.. PLEASE HELP

When you first boot do you get a screen with choices on which WinXP to boot to?
