if you have 2 hd's just move the files to the other hd while you are formatting. or you can save it a flash drive or disk or whatever else. there is online storage @ mozy.com 2gb free

are you booting with the seagate drive and it still doesnt show up?

in my bios the first boot device is my old hd, but when it starts booting, it asks which OS id like to boot and it shows 2 windows xp home edition, so i pick the first one which is the new hd (seagate) and the bottom is the old hd

but right now i disconnected the old hd again, and when i boot, i get the message:

NTLDR is missing
Press ctrl+alt+del to restart

Might need to do a Windows Repair with the old drive disconnected, using F6 to install the SATA/RAID drivers for the new drive to be detected. Sounds like its looking to the old drive for its BOOT.INI etc...
