So, let me get this straight. You had a virus, reformatted the wrong HDD, installed windows on the wrong HDD, boot to the wrong HDD, and the primary HDD still has windows and viruses stil installed on it?

If this is the case, while booted to "new" OS on wrong HDD, open my computer, right click on HDD with old OS & Virus and select format. ???
