Hi I have this problem. I have no floppy drive, no optical drive. I have this blank external usb Hard drive.

I need to make the external hard drive to be "BOOTABLE ON ANOTHER COMPUTER WHEN INSTALLED AS INTERNEL DRIVE".

I know there are plenty tools to make a "BOOTABLE USB DRIVE", but will the drive be bootable if it is installed as a primary internal drive?
