The IDE drive should still work.
Set the jumper to the master setting, remove any other HDDs, then try reinstalling, but before you click "install now," hit shift+10 to bring up the command prompt.
at each prompt, type the following:
- list disk
- sel disk 0
- clean all (this will erase and overwrite the entire HDD, zeroing it and will take a long time)
Then proceed with setup.
- click drive options
- create one partition
- delete the 100MB system reserved partition that windows creates
- continue with setup
I'd give it about an 80% chance of working acceptably if you're not getting disk errors because of failing sectors in the HDD provided you have a fast enough CPU, an good graphics card (Older agp cards don't work very well, however) and at least 1 GB of pc2700 ram or better
