    Default Is this Possible? Booting Leopard from External drive (Original Macbook on Windows 7

    Hi...

    I recently upgraded my Macbook pro hard drive with a 500GB one .. I have taken the old hard drive (it has Mac OS X and Windows 7 using Bootcamp) which is in Perfect
    working condition and connected it to My Windows 7 PC using USB .. The drive is getting detected when i connect it using USB plus i can also browse the contents of the MAC partition using the MacDrive software ...

    Now what I would like to do is find some way so that i can boot my PC into this Mac OS on this external drive .. Is it possible? What all do i need to do?
    Some kinda bootloader? I am a total n00b at this .. so I would highly appreciate if some of you Pros could help me... Thanks!

    You cant, you have to install using Retail DVD (theres guides for it) or using a distro, you need to know your hardware to try, there lots of guides about how to do it, for more info post your pc specs here
