Am I able to run windows from a windows installed HDD on a Macbook? I tried it with a 64-bit Vista hard drive which started loading WIndows but crashed with the blue screen of death. I assume it's either because windows isn't compatible or it's because it was 64-bit. If I use a 32 bit Windows hard drive will I be able to use it with Macbook hardware?
