Ok, well here's what we'll do: Take out the OS on your external. Simply put your important files on your mains hard drive, format it and simply replace back all the important stuff.

well, if you can, go into the BIOS and make sure the boot order is set to boot from the internal hard drive first. That's how to proceed.
