Don't rely on an external as you're only copy. They are prone to failure.

Get an internal if poss.

as above .... get another internal & make it a slave drive .......

use the one you have to loads windows up ...... but save your data (you use) on new one ......
i have 2 drives (2x500GB) and its easier to have 2 cos then you have a backup of one fails / gets full :)

its pretty easy to make a drive into slave, on the back of th HD should be 4 rows of pins with a small peice of metal on one. Remove that and put it in the slave position (will tell you how on the HD)
then insert into the pc. and load windows. Open my computer & format it :thumbsup:
