    Default Install Windows 7 and run from external drive

    hey everyone,

    has anyone been successful in installing windows 7 to an external drive and running it off that drive off a mac? i've looked around online, and its not possible to run from an external USB, but they did say its possible to run off an external SATA. i haven't seen any instructions on how to run the installation though. anyone here have any pointers or ideas?

    yes, i know its possible to run windows 7 from the internal drive, and probably preferable. i understand there may be some performance issues running 7 off an external. but, let's just say i want to do it anyway.

    thanks!

    I'm not sure if it will because of the limited knowledge leopard has on the os, I can't prove anything cause I didn't try it but there could be a work around, if not snow leopard will have support

    haven't been able to find a work around. turns out i need an eSata card to run a sata drive to run 7 off of. it can't be a usb-> sata case. its ok anyway, i managed to finally defrag and drop 7 on a boot camp installation.
