  1. Hello.. I have windows vista installed on my c: drive..I wondering if I can install XP on my external 160g HD? If I can then how can I load the windows up? I was thinkg maybe I could set the external HD to boot up first in the BIOS but I dont wanna screw something up so I wanna ask first....Also I have alot of files of my external hd would this overwrite my files? If not would i still be able to see the the same as before? ...Thanx for any help

    Usually if you place USB devices to boot it is fine. Your boot order should look like this:

    USB_---
    CD-ROM
    HDD_0
    Floppy/Other devices
