Than you in advance for any and all help pertaing to my issue. Problem: 3-4yr old HP laptop. Did have Win XPsp2 on it. HDD went bad. Used Barts PE to create bootable cd-rom with half working Win XP, but...


Why do it the hard way? If your HDD is bad, most probably the system files are corrupted too and getting/making a bootable CD from the HDD files is just wasting your effort. If you laptop CD/DVD drive is still good, then use the options below: -

1. Go to any torrents site download "hp oem xp" disc from the site & burn the bootable image to a CDR.

2. Go the the Hp support Site & download the XP drivers for your Laptop model.

3. Then you can do a new installations on your Laptop.

Hope it helps.

How to load xp in external usb hdd


Dear Krihard,

Good to hear from some one who is in my Neighbor country India.

well as i know Its not possible to Install any of windows OS on external HDD.
Microsoft Dont allow it, becz they wont be able to make extra money if they give this option.....


But there is a option in my mind; like if External HDD have image of internal drive and computer has option of booting from USB; then it may get loaded,.... Hvn't tried this thing personally...

best regards,

you dont mention the drivers you need, you dont get drivers for software as you say, but if you mean the motherboard drivers, you will have to find out the maker of your board then search the relevant makers web site for drivers. The only problem you may come across is that the bios may have a different version for Vista than that of what you need for XP so there may be some problems stting up the motherboard drivers.
