I have a compaq evo n1020v P4notebook. I believe I can change the cmos to force it to boot from a usb device. If this is true can I remove the internal hard drive and run the computer all the time from the external drive? I have noticed that my hard drive gets rather warm, almost as warm as the cpu area of the notebook...also I want to get a 7,200 rpm hard drive and more and more of the cheaper ones are SATA (my notebook is ide).
