I actually was curious about some thing I indeed found possible: installing Windows 7 on a USB flash drive. I don't mean from, I mean using the OS, going online, and playing games on the flash drive. I have an 8 GB HP flash USB drive (Amazon.com: HP 8 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive P-FD8GB-HPV100W-FS: Electronics). That should be sufficient for a whole Windows 7 OS install (about 3 GB maximum) and extra drivers, updates, a few programs, docs, and maybe 1 installed game. I want to do this, because like us weird computer people, we like to do crazy stuff that makes no sense! (JK) Basically, I want to be able to switch the USB from computer to another, so I can always have MY computer with me, so I can do my Flash animating and my own games and programs even on the other side of the country, as long as the computer supports the drive and the OS. My dad's Mac has an Intel processor, so if I can get this to work, I could boot from the USB drive on his Macbook and use Windows 7! Haha, amazing! This really almost seems like the future of computers: no more built in hard drives; all are removable, and compatible with any computer, PC or Mac. Compatibility and ease of use=the future. No more log me in; it is all about having your computer with you at all times, not over the internet. To expand the matter, 16 GB mini sd cards are releasing, meaning you could literally boot Windows, install games, programs, and create docs on a piece of plastic about the weight and size a third of a penny, which you could insert into any computer that exists and use your computer on another. Now that is the future. Wait until 100 GB+ Sd cards, and we are really talking. I found some articles and stumbled upon this post: Install Windows 7 From USB Drive/Pen Drive Now, first of all, this article is explaining how to install Windows ON a USB drive, not from and onto a computer hard drive, correct? If so, should I even follow these instructions, or would some one here give me better advice?
