Kill the caps - its considered shouting
Boot from winxp cd and partition etc with that.
You may have to amend boot order in the bios to enable boot from cd.
Depending on your version of winxp you may have to enable 'bigLba'

When you can learn proper netiquette and post in proper sentences, adhering
to the common nuances of written English, then someone will answer you.
Until then, you'll just have to go unassisted. All caps is considered
yelling, is incredibly rude and makes your posts very hard to read.

CAPITALS MEANS SHOUTING.

Many people won't respond to shouting.

Are you replacing the exisaing drive? If you are replacing it why do you
think you have to do that? If it works why not add the new drive as extra
space?
