I bought a new PC with Vista Home Premium the day before Windows 7 came out (yes, I know..I was kicking myself lol but I didn't know 7 was so near to being released) but the manufacturers are sending me a free Windows 7 disc so it's not too bad. What I wanted to know is, is it possible to install Windows 7 onto my External Hard Drive so I can see what it's like and get used to it for if/when I decide to install it on the PC?
I've been using a PC with XP for years but have a laptop with Vista on which I've been using very rarely for about 2 years but I hate it. I don't like laptops for a start and as I was new to laptops and Vista I've not liked using it. But, using Vista on this new PC hasn't been too bad over the past week and I quite like it. lol I know I will have to use Windows 7 at some point in time but having a look at it and getting used to it via the EHD seems a good idea..but can it be done?
