If we are unable to resolve your Windows 9x/2000/XP issue, you may be able to find help inMicrosoft's Knowledge Base. Launch the Boot Camp Assistant and select "Create or Remove a Windows Partition". http://drupalmostpopular.com/boot-camp/boot-camp-xp-disk-error-press-any-key.html

As a final note I will recommend keeping the disk as FAT32 so you can write to it from Mac, as well as this I also recommend reading the Boot Camp I lurked a bit to find that this seems to originate from firmware colliding with the drivers.
