Is it possible to boot from a usb hard drive? I want to actually run windows from the external hard drive. Anyone know?

Its in my sig. I really want to be able to do it with my new 8890 though. My problem is my school has a wireless network and they will only let people acess them with their notebooks. What I'm hoping to do is to take my old notebook hard drive with the schools WEP on it and use it to run the sager for when I want to acess the internet. I could also just copy the old hard drive to the new, but I'll loose hyperthreading if I do that. ...

Well I doubt you will be able to boot off the hd from the other laptop. The drivers on it will be completly wrong for the sager. You'll get blue screen more than likely. Ive only had one motherboard swap out, that I got to run off the hard drive setup for a different mobo with. If they set up the key on your comp, what do they do if your old laptop dies? Do you bring it in, and they give you a new one? Or do you have to buy a new one? Tell them the os crashed, and ask them how you get a new key for it, after reformating. Then you could put a keylogger program on it, and if they have to enter it on their own for you, have the keylogger running, and BAM you got your wep key.
