Default Harddrive Crash problem?

I recently had my harddrive crash in my pc, I have two in my box the one i had running windows xp is the one that died, the other one is a 149 gb sata hd I had games and other programs on. The question I have is can I take out the 149 Gb HD and use one of my other pc's to wipe the hard drive and put windows back on it to use for my game pc again?

pls Help

Am I seeing something odd?

"the one i had running windows xp is the one that died"
"the other one is a 149 gb sata hd I had games and other programs on."
"The question I have is can I take out the 149 Gb HD and use one of my other pc's to wipe the hard drive and put windows back on it to use for my game pc again?"

You do not have Windows on your 149GB HDD. Unless you meant wipe it and then install Windows. Unless you need data off of it, use GParted. Also, is your XP a OEM or retail?
