    no, the CF slot on the MII is not connected to IDE. There are ways to boot Linux, but not Windows.

          yes, technically it can be done but most likely it'll be more work than you're willing to do and it'll be very slow because the MII uses the Award BIOS which makes the USB ports run only in USB1 speeds.

          Just get a new HDD.
