Hi. I have a Compaq TC1000. I've had it for several years, and now, it's become bogged down with many programs installed, residue left from uninstall, old files, corrupt system files, many removed virus' ect ect. Its MUCH slower than when I first got it, and would just like to reinstall XP on it. I found my restore CDs in the box it came in, but, I don't have a dock or an external cd drive. I've found some USB>IDE external CD drive enclosures on the net, but my question is, can I reinstall XP on a TC1000 with a USB drive, or do I need a dock?
