Hey guys,

Intro
i managed to install windows on my USB drive, i've updated a copy of my windows to support loading and booting from a usb drive. now the windows copy is there, everything works fine, but there is 1 problem, when installing windows, i had to partition my internal hdd using bootcamp dont know why, but it needs to write the boot records or something on my hdd, windows loaded fine the first time I actually loaded it a few times it was working fine until!

Chap 1
I dont know why, but today i just wanted to remove that partition on my internal hdd the empty one. so i did, and now windows wont load on the usb drive. any one with a similar problem? or a way to fix this issue, like can I write the boot sector thing on the usb drive rather than internal mac partition?

Regards.

QUOTE Thanks
