M8.2 with WinXP Partition problem

Hi, I partitioned my harddrive using winXP before i installed it. I have a 20GB harddrive. C: is 5GB. D: is 7GB. The rest is meant for Mandrake. I tried installing WinXP with both its partitions either NTFS or FAT32 and booted into Mandrake setup. THe setup gets stuck when it says like my partitions are corrupted and it can't read them.
"An error occured. ask_before_blanking: unknown partition format"

Anyone knows how to solve this? I'm using a laptop with 900MHZ and 300+RAM. I believe it passes the minimum requirement.

The weird thing is i managed to install this dual system on my desktop few months back but now i don't know why this is happening on my laptop.
