You should have tried SP3. I am using XP with SP3 and an external drive with no problems.

Could have been the drive letter not set correctly.

Backup all your files & music & E-mail & contacts to an external device: DVD-writable, USB memory-stick, external disk-drive.

Reinstall Windows, and reload your files.

That should fix any SOFTWARE problems -- if you have a HARDWARE problem (dying disk-drive, bad RAM, et cetera)
that's a separate round of trouble-shooting.

Hoe to install a diferent windows on a DELL


If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.

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,

External hard drve


Hello,

First I would verify that USB ports are functioning properly by plugging another device into the port and verifying that it works. If it does, then you can try restarting the computer - as sometimes the computer will detect an external drive on startup. You should also make sure that the software provided by the manufacture is correctly installed.
