So I just bought a new, bigger HD, a Hitachi 120Gb Travelstar 5K160 for my 5 year old Dell Inspiron 4150 running XP. Eventually, I will make it my primary drive, and I'll install XP on it. For now, I'm going to keep it as my USB drive until I get my current drive's data onto it. That's my plan. So far, I've hooked it up and my system saw it and got it ready. But it doesn't come up as a drive on my system. This is surely because it has yet to be formatted. How can I format it? A disk came with the HD, which it seems wants to install Windows 98. That means I could swap my old drive out and this new drive in, then boot up with the disk in and get 98 installed on my new drive. I guess then the only piece would be that I would have to have an upgrade version of XP, rather than an install. Is there a better way to get this new drive running so that I can access it from my current system?
