    I don't think anyone could make sense of what you said if I can't.


    You have a messed up IDE hard drive.

    It is from a computer.

    You want to reformat and reinstall XP.

    That I understand.

    THEN, you start taliking about some external hard drive - ???

    What make and model of computer do you have?

    Do you have the XP install disk AND the manufacturer support disk?

    Do you have a floppy drive AND/or a cd/dvd drive IN the computer?
