Windows Vista will NOT let me format my hard drive

I was giving Vista RC1 a trial, but I have come to the conclusion that my computer runs much better with XP. I wanted to downgrade back to XP. My Vista installation is on my primary and only hard drive. When I try to restart the computer with my XP CD in, it tells me that it cannot find my hard drive! When I boot normally though, my computer still works.
Some additional info:
My computer model is an HP Pavillion dv8000 laptop.
My XP Cd is a Media Center Ed. system restore DVD provided by HP with my computer.
