Hi shakiko...

You may be better off getting a new internal HDD...it sounds as though the current drive is headed south on you. I would suggest a new internal drive, install it as the Primary Master, and install Windows on it. You can then install the bad drive as a slave and recover the data from it directly. In any case, I wouldn't work the drive too hard or it may fail before you can get your information off of it.
