I don't think you can call extended stored procedures using OPENROWSET. Try using linked servers:

To add a linked server:
EXECUTE sp_addlinkedserver 'servername', N'SQL Server'

To define the login to use on this linked server:
EXECUTE sp_addlinkedsrvlogin 'servername', 'false',           'localusername', 'linkedserverusername', 'linkedserverpassword'

Then you can run the query as:
EXECUTE servername.master.dbo.xp_fixeddrives

I think the error is because you're trying to call an extended stored procedure. It would work if you were calling a standard stored procedure.

This works:

EXECUTE OPENDATASOURCE('SQLOLEDB', 'Data Source=ServerName;User ID=UserName;Password=Password'
