    Okay I guess I was not well informed but could not try as probably expected to install W7 on an external HD connected via USB.

    Since this is a website of genius and talented poeple I was wondering if there's a work around this issue :rolleyes:

    The message comes as :

    "setup does not support configuration of os installation to disks connected through a usb or IEEE1394 port.

    Windows must be installed to a partitition foramtted as NTFS."
