    Im about to reformat my HD, now i have a 74GB Raptor as main boot drive and a 250GB HD for music, videos etc connected to sata II, if i chuck everything i want to keep in my 250GB drive, unplug it, then do a reformat with my raptor drive as boot and os drive, then after everything has installed. Plug in my 250GB will it be ok ?, everythig will be as it was before ?

    Also, what about all my SP2 updates, It will take ages to reupdate again, any way of this being quicker ?

    Im using XP Pro with SP2 installed,

    Yeah, it will be fine. Just plug it back in after the format.

    SP2 updates shouldn't take too long....if you have a 10mb connection :D
