external hard drive and windows installation


Recommended Posts

Booting from an external hard drive isn't recommended, because it only takes a loose cable or a knock to corrupt the operating system. Also, 5,400RPM drives are mostly laptop hard drives, which are 2.5" drives. Desktop hard drives are 3.5", which spin at 7,200RPM and offer decent transfer rates. Also, if you were fully intending on doing this, I'd recommend eSATA over USB 2.0, however, not that many computer support it.

I don't know what to do. My PC went bananas, and I'm using brother's.

I kinda hoped to put everything I have on it on external HDD so I could use it anywhere.

I guess I'll buy this but will use only removable versions of programs, without installing windows.

Crazy solution, huh?
