You need to explain your problem better. You can't format to an OS. You format and then install an OS. If you have Windows 7 already I suggest you just keep it.

What is the source of your WinXP files? If you downloaded them you may have gotten a virus along with the XP files.

Formating wipes the hard drive, sets up the file system (i.e., FAT32, NTFS), & prepares the drive for installation of the OS or use for file storage. As OtheHill said, "you can't format to an OS".

If you have a SATA HDD, Win7 should install without any problems, but there's a trick(s) to get XP to install.
