    & Repartitioned & reformated it & Instal WinXp_SP2 & other basic software
    HDD was running very fine in my PC
    Now when i gave him that HDD it was not running in his PC
    I tried to plug & run in 3 other PC (PIII, Celeron & PIV) but it did run
    When i plug it, it shows option Safe Mode, Starts Windows Normally & other options
    but after i select something it just hold for 5-6 sec & shows blue screen error
    " x9c9028xz hardware fault " something like that
    & PC restarts
    even if i select safe mode it load some file (like normaly hdd do in starting in safe mode)
    & again shows same blue screen & PC restarts

    Connecting it to that PC n installing Win on it would be the best n easiest method btw i havent tried this second method, bt yes if u have time then do try this n inform me if u were abl to this successfully. :)

    wat u are trying to do is not possible in win XP (it works in win98Se for me after that i didnt trie on other os's)

    best you can do is to start the installation from your friends hdd itself on your pc (after coping the installation files, then making it the only hdd in your pc).
    when all files are copied (from the dos kinda blue screen) and it asks for reboot. reboot and shut down.
    take id and plug this hdd to the friend's of your and from there resume the installation. this will do what u r tring to do.
