Boot from express card
Posted on 2013-05-28
I have a Sony TZ21 mn/n ultra portable which is fine for my purposes. Unfortunaely the installed HDD is a 1.8 inch 100gig unit but spins at 4200 rpm (or thereabouts) hence it is slow on boot and not clever either on opeing files.
I have a 32gig express storage card and have set this up to boot and have copied the Windows 7 .iso files and have changed the bios to boot from this drive.
so far so good.
When i restart the machine, it does boot from the express drive and opens up the normal windows installation screen.
However, I am sure that if i continue, the installation will be done on the "normal" location, drive C.
Is there a way I can force it to install on drive F (the express drive)?
Is dual boot an option, if so, what is the ideal way to install identical Windows 7 installations?
