first of all, i have a 40gb ide hdd in a usb case. it works in windows 2000, perfect on my computer. i installed the os on the hdd drive and it boots of my computer perfectly when i enable boot from usb Hdd.
on my laptop, i have a a21m IBM, 800mhz, i can access the usb drive in windows, but i cannot boot the OS from the usb hdd as the bios does not have the option to boot from usb hdd.
therefore i was wondering if it was possible to use a startup disk, have some kind of software that will boot the usb hdd? and load my os?
