Yes, u can install to an external USB hard drive but you have to modify the USB driver so that it doesn't disconnect during the boot procedure (Win XP resets the USB driver like 3 times during startup). If you google Windows XP on External Hard Drive you can probably find a step by step guide for getting in to on to a different drive.

A hard drive that old would just be prone to dying from the slightest little thing. How old is that drive? Has to be almost 10 years old.

Due to its age its quite possible that it just decided to go [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG] up mate. Computer components can die from just sitting, they're goofy like that.
