I'm not absolutely positive about this, but if you are running XP SP3 I believe the DVD has to be XP SP3 or it won't work right. I seriously doubt you will mess anything up, but it may not work right. Another option for your XP drive is a system image, but you have to have an external source to put it on, or at least another internal drive. Read this tutorial and watch the video to see a small example of how it works. And it will not bother your current XP drive at all. Imaging with free Macrium

I know that's quite a few questions ut I think I may be getting a little outside of my experience / comfort zone...
I think your answer to these several questions was "yes". I'm just a little paranoid I guess but I want to make sure I understand before sending in my RMA to get the new drive:

I should be able to boot into 7 and from there clone my old XP drive onto a new drive (both partitions; boot and extended) and then be able to remove the old drive, change my boot sequence and boot into XP just as I am able to do now?

Yes, but you will need to download a program to do it.

Can you be more specific? What program. I have several 3rd disc / partitioning / management utilities already?

Does it have a cloning function? Or you could do an image. If it doesn't have, you can download free Macrium which does both.

Let me catch up a couple of things. Aside from the "DELL" screen when powering on these are the screens that show during boot (I know it took me a while but I hope this can answer the RAID or no RAID question).

Your Sata controller is in Raid mode, but you have no raid volumes set up. That's what the second window is. The first Window is the VIA Raid card. If that is what you were asking. But, it does explain a few things.

Okay. Can you explain to me what that means?

I also ran the diagnostics on the WD drive (which contains my Windows 7 OS and 1 extended partition). I could not get the DLDiag app to run from CD so I tested the drive with SeaTools. SeaTools reported no issues. The WD drive passed all tests.

Your VIA Card has it's own bios. So it is reporting what is connected to it. The second screen is your Motherboard Bios. It is set to raid, which it has no need to be, unless you are running a raid volume, which you're not. It shouldn't be set to raid. But, if you change it, you will not be able to boot into your OS probably, you will have to do a clean install. Will it hurt to leave it like it is? Probably not, you can just try it and see. If you change it, it affects both your Windows 7 and you XP drive.

Okay. That makes sense. I assume when you say "you can just try it and see" you mean leaving it as it is. Is that correct?

I have been more than 14 days with no BSODs and no issues at shutdown for 6 days. I think that the VIA card being disabled combined with "repairing" the bad sector on my other drive have helped resolve that. I do however, want to replace the potentially failing Seagate drive that has the bad sector.

I have AOMEI Partition assistant SE 5.5 and Paragon Partition Manger 11 Free. Both say they can make sector by sector copies of a selected drive. I take that to mean cloning?

I don't have any reservations about downloading Macrium Reflector Free either. What do you recommend? I do want to file my claim with Seagate to replace the drive so long as I can be confident that I can clone/image my old drive and it will still function as it does now. Would cloning the drive put the data at risk?

Will you help me with that once I receive the new drive from Seagate?
