Reformat your opening post before reformatting your hard drive.

I started reading then gave up, can u condense what you need into under 200 words?

Wow! Lots of words! And some of them are spelt correctly!
Now, take a deep breathe, calm down, and start again, but this time use grammar & punctuation so that we can work out what you are trying to say.

Your Opening Post is VERY confusing.

You have 2 SATA drives, one has "windows xp installed" and the other clean one you want to install "xp home" on. So which version of XP is on there to begin with?

Also why do you want 2 lots of the same operating system on the same computer anyway? You havnt (well atleast i dont think you have) mentioned that your OS is corrupt or any other logical need for installing another XP OS on a another drive.

In terms of having 2 OS or dual boot, since they are going to be on 2 separate drives, you may have to go into bios and prioritise the HDD order, so whichever you give priority to will load by default.

As for your password and website issue, you are coming across as a very....umm....stupid person. At the very least, you know your email address right? Theres something called password recovery or "forgotten password", "forgotten username" on every website. Just follow the steps and dont rely so much on your 'saved' passwords, otherwise you will regret it really badly in time to come.

csiman do me a favour

If it is set-up in the BIOS correctly they should not conflict.

Firstly though, you should see if you can get the the original Windows XP booting without the second drive attached (to ensure the boot instructions aren't on the other drive). If it works then you are good to go.

data what you wnt on to a usb pen, reinstall xp on ya old drive, sell the one you brought and dont acctually need

Your original post suggests otherwise.
