Hey Guys!

Got a problem,

I have 2 Hard drives, one with windows 7 installed ( HD1), and the other used as storage (HD2)
I have the windows xp file on HD2 and i want to put windows xp on HD1, my disk drive is broken and my USB is broken

Is it possible to install windows xp from HD2 to HD1?

Several questions:

- Do you want to wipe the drive, lose Windows 7, & replace with XP? Or do you plan on partitioning the drive & going with a dual boot setup?
- If the HDDs are SATA, you're ging to have a hell of a time installing XP. Do you have a floppy drive?
- Do you have all the device drivers needed for XP?
- Why not replace the optical drive? You're obviously going to need one & it will make things much easier.

You need to answer my questions, otherwise we're both wasting our time.
