    USB External Hardrive

    Hi,

    I am considering installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a USB external hard drive,
    Is the a bad idea or should it run fine.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    while it will work, it might not be in the acceptable range--you would be limited by the speed of the usb bus, which is much slower then a ide connected hdd..(depending on what else you have plugged in to the usb ports, it could be even slower then expected..)
