   I tried to install Windows XP on a external usb hdd. The first part of installation (copy files form cd,...) was ok.
   After that, when windows try to boot first time from usb hdd, in the loading drivers process, a blue screen appears, with error 7b.

What should i do to boot windows from the external usb hdd.
I'm using a laptop Acer Travelmate 662LCi as host.
If necessary i can use windows 2000 insted of xp.

Thank you,
