Created a bootable USB drive

Hi all,

I reinstalled Windows XP on an external hard drive, which would be permanently connected to it with USB.

To do this, I created a bootable USB drive (from a CD) ,but when installing windows (blue screen with the loading of drivers below), once at "installing windows "I am entitled to a beautiful blue screen!

First of all,is my manipulation  feasible?
If so, where does the problem?
If not, do you have other solutions?

Thanks.

Hi Matt,

Installing Windows on an external HDD is technically correct and is completely feasible but this might lead to unpredictable errors and will lead to a longer response time for any process, frankly speaking your system will become slow.

If you try to use this HDD on a different system you will need to install the drivers for that system which means that any time the HDD is disconnected and reconnected the drivers for the system will have to be installed.

 As far as this section of your post is concerned:

"when installing windows (blue screen with the loading of drivers below), once at "installing windows "I am entitled to a beautiful blue screen!"

This is the regular XP installation process. If you see any error then, please come up with it.
