Default Problem with Formatting XP

So I have an XP CD. I put it in the CD drive and i choose to boot up from the CD. So everything seems to be going ok. Windows Setup starts to load drivers, adapters, ect. Then I get the message windows is starting up at the bottom and my screen flickers once or twice. And I get this stupid blue screen everytime that goes on about not having enough drive space (17 gigs free), and possibly something wrong with my video drivers (what I am looking into right now). The next paragraph talks about my BIOS and cache and shadowing. It also says if this is the first time you've seen this message restart your computer.

Then I get this Technical Explanation at the bottom.
Stop: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0x00000001, 0xF7CC218C, 0xF7CC1E88)

Can anyone tell me how to format my hardrive now that all this is going on?

I get almost the same problem! When/how the blue screen appears is the same, but the error is different. Please, PLEASE somebody check my topic about it.
