Hi I have an HP zt1195 Pavilion notebook. My IBM Travel star hard drive
broke so I installed a new one but the IC BIOS doesn't see it. However when
I start installing XP it sees the drive and wants to format it however when I
do it say it is unable because the IDE controller needs proprietary drives
and exits the setup. I was thinking I have a USD hard drive link and another
laptop would it be possible for me to use this laptop to install XP on the
new hard drive hooked to the USB port without damaging my current install on
this laptop?
