New Hard Drive Upgrade

  none11111111111111133 10:57 30 Oct 2004

I am about to upgrade my hard drive from my original 40 gig to 1 new Maxtor 120 gig drive. (I picked up the hard drive from click here for a modest £47) I intend to reload all my software from scratch. Once loaded I intend to carry out a back up so that in the future I can restore my computer to a clean and original state thereby removing all the bugs, rubbish and unwanted registry additions. I have an external 250 Maxtor which I use to archive

The only area that I am not sure of is how I format the disk …. I operate XP home edition…….. will that prompt me to format prior to loading up XP ….. or do I install my new drive as a second drive.. format it … and … then re-install it as the main drive …

Can anyone help
