Recently, I've been working through steps to install Windows XP onto my external HDD. The ONLY modification I did to it in specific, was attempting to format it with this tool: http://h18000.www1.h...load/23839.html

Now, I did this as it was recommended to do so on a guide to make XP bootable from a USB-connected HDD. After running the HP Tool that was posted, my 250 GB Western Digital external HDD now shows up as 907 MB.

I've tried downloading Paragon Partition Manager, and deleting/formatting/etc and messing around with everything, but nothing works. Any help would be appreciated.. thanks in advance.

EDIT: Ah, I fixed it. Sorry about that. I had to boot to CD and delete the "partition" of 907 MB, that fixed it up.
