He said that my only option is to do a clean install and copy and paste my stuff thru the USB and my external drive(my old drive in the enclosure).
Now on to a Fresh Install(yuck!!).
I've got a couple questions before I try installing XP.
1. My new Seagate drive is now full of data from the cloning process...will the XP install disk just reformat the drive and erase what's on the drive?
2. These are the disks Dell sent me:
Reinstallation DVD Ms Media Center Edition 2005 with Update Rollup 2
Reinstall Dell Inspiron Software includes: Device Drivers and utilities
Reinstall Tools System Software Contents: Antivirus Software,Support software,multimedia software,internet software
Are these all I need to get my system up and running?
3. Do I just install the new Seagate drive and boot of the XP reinstall DVD and follow the instructions.
